T.J. Moe says Missouri offense needs to incorporate Dorial Green-Beckham more

Missouri freshman receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has just six catches for 48 yards in 2012, and receiver T.J. Moe feels the offense needs to find a way to get him more involved in the offense.

The Missouri offense is struggling so far this season, their first year in the SEC, scoring just 30 points total in losses to Georgia and South Carolina. According to STLToday, Moe feels that the offense needs to get the heralded young player the ball more often.

"I've been the leading receiver on the team the last two years and I had two catches and 13 yards (at South Carolina), so it's not like everyone is getting 150 yards and he's not doing anything," receiver T.J. Moe said. "We're all struggling. He's listening, learning and seeing what everyone else is going through. He knows he can contribute. We have to find a way to get him the football."

Green-Beckham was one of the most highly-coveted recruits in the country this past year, playing high school at Hillcrest in Springfield, Missouri. He finished his senior year with 119 receptions for 2,233 yards and 24 touchdowns.

The Tigers face UCF on Saturday, with kickoff set for 11 a.m. CT.
