   Burglary, not drugs.  That's what Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham may be involved with according to police in Columbia.  

   Until Wednesday's public information report, the police had declined any comment on the pending investigation into Sunday's burglary involving Green-Beckham, though it's still unclear if he is a suspect, victim or witness.  

   The report says police responded to a first-degree burglary at the Brookside Townhomes about 2:30 Sunday morning.  The Columbia Missourian quotes residents as saying Green-Beckham was involved in an incident there around that time.  But no one has been arrested or charged in the case.  

   On Monday, Mizzou Coach Gary Pinkel announced the Tiger stand-out had been indefinitely suspended for an unspecified violation of team rules.

   Green-Beckham has been the subject what police have called two separate marijuana-related arrests within about 15 months, the latest in January in his home town of Springfield.  But his adoptive father, Hillcrest High School football coach John Beckham, tells the Springfield News-Leader that his suspension isn't related to those incidents.
