Missouri Tigers sophomore receiver Dorial Green-Beckham exited Saturday's SEC Championship Game against Auburn in the first quarter with a left shoulder injury.

Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported the news, noting that the standout playmaker had to go to the locker room in Atlanta's Georgia Dome to be evaluated:

ESPN SEC added more detail:

However, Beckham would return to the game according to Columbia Daily Tribune reporter David Morrison:

Green-Beckham had three receptions for 48 yards, including a 28-yard touchdown catch from senior quarterback James Franklin. If the Tigers are going to be missing Green-Beckham for the remainder of the game, it will hurt their chances of walking away with the conference title.

Entering this marquee clash with BCS No. 3 Auburn, Green-Beckham was tied with L'Damian Washington for the team lead with 10 touchdown receptions this season.

Franklin can rely on Green-Beckham due to the receiver's massive size at 6'6" and 225 pounds, which allows him to get physical and to frequently win jump ball situations with smaller defensive backs.
