Two other players were also suspended, though they were not arrested. All are freshmen.
University police say Green-Beckham, Torey Boozer and Levi Copelin were sitting in Green-Beckham's white Lincoln Navigator in a parking lot near Memorial Stadium shortly before midnight when a patrol officer approached and smelled marijuana.
Each was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of possession of 35 grams or less of marijuana and released with a summons to appear in court next month.
A team spokesman says the players will miss at least one game. So will Harold Brantley and Brandon Holifield, who were in the car but not arrested.
