Because I know you care deeply, here’s the first bit of Baylor news I have to share.
Baylor starting quarterback Charlie Brewer remains in concussion protocol more than a week after being injured in the Big 12 Championship Game.
Coach Matt Rhule gave his first update on Brewer to reporters Sunday ahead of the Jan. 1 Sugar Bowl meeting with Georgia.
“Just step by step,” Rhule said, declining to say whether Brewer would play in the bowl. “I have no idea. It’s really all up to the doctors. They kind of monitor every step.”
Brewer left the Big 12 title game in the first half after official Mike Defee noticed something off after he had taken a couple of hard hits, including one where his head struck the turf.
Brewer ranks third in the Big 12 in passing efficiency, completing 65.2% of his passes for 20 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also ran for 337 yards and 10 TDs this season.
I’d say that’s kind of a big deal.
