COLUMBIA — Reserve linebacker Tyler Crane is no longer a member of the Missouri football team.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reported Tuesday the junior from Allen, Texas, was dismissed for disciplinary reasons. A team spokesman said Crane was not in legal trouble but declined to elaborate on the reasons for his departure.

Crane was a backup and special teams player in his two seasons with the Tigers, making six tackles in 22 games. He appeared in 11 games at defensive end as a true freshman in 2007 but sat out the 2008 season after switching to linebacker. Last year he played in 11 games, mostly on special teams.
