Andy Bitter of The Roanoke Times reports that Virginia Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer (collarbone) could be a gametime decision this Friday night against N.C. State.
Brewer, who broke his collarbone in the team's season-opening loss to Ohio State, has been medically cleared to practice. He was initially expected to miss 4-8 weeks, which would have meant the earliest possible return date was Halloween against Boston College. The 6-foot, 200-pound Brewer has progressed quicker than that. You can bet he'll be in the lineup if he can be, because the 2-3 Hokies -- slight home underdogs to the Wolfpack -- cannot afford another loss. "Michael has never been out of sight or out of mind ever since the time he was injured," offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler said. "He’s a guy who’s really important to our team as a leader. That’s why we traveled him. He’s a guy who’s helping our team. He’s helping myself." Oct 6 - 4:58 PM

Virginia Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer (shoulder) has been medically cleared to practice.

Brewer infamously broke his collarbone in the team's season-opening loss to Ohio State. He was initially expected to miss 4-8 weeks, but appears like he'll hit the low end of the timetable due to a fast recovery. The 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt junior will be a game-time decision for Friday's showdown with NC State. In his stead, Brenden Motley has thrown for 861 yards and a 7/5 TD/INT ratio. Three of the five interceptions came in Saturday's ugly 17-13 loss to Pittsburgh. Motley completed just 9-of-20 passes for 91 yards in that affair.

Virginia Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer's Tuesday surgery to repair a fractured collarbone was successful.

With the surgery out of the way, Brewer will begin rehabbing once he receives medical clearance to do so. The 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt junior is expected to miss 4-8 weeks. Brenden Motley will take over as starter moving forward, though Brewer should return before the season closes out. He broke the collarbone against Ohio State in Monday's loss.
Sep 8 - 6:19 PM

Virginia Tech redshirt junior starting QB Michael Brewer will miss 4-8 weeks after fracturing his left collarbone against Ohio State.

Brewer looked like an above average college quarterback early on before being driven to the ground by a defensive lineman. Brenden Motley, who was seeing snaps as a role player, entered and did not look nearly as composed. Motley will now be the school's starter.

Virginia Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer broke his collarbone against Ohio State on Monday.

Brewer will reportedly undergo surgery on Tuesday and told ESPN he could miss four-to-five weeks. The 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt junior was dropping back to pass in the third quarter when Buckeye defensive lineman Adolphus Washington busted through for the sack. Brewer landed hard on his left shoulder before being taken to the locker room. Prior to his injury, he had played very well, completing 11-of-16 passes for 156 yards and two scores. Junior QB Brenden Motley took over for him after the injury and will likely start for the Hokies moving forward. For his part, Motley looked mostly overwhelmed, though he did toss a nice, if meaningless, touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

Virginia Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer was taken to the locker room after falling hard on his left shoulder in Monday's game against Ohio State.

Midway through the third quarter, Brewer dropped back to pass. Adolphus Washington broke through the offensive line and slammed into the quarterback as he was throwing. Brewer was in obvious pain after the injury and headed to the locker room, replaced by junior Brenden Motley. We should have a more clear picture of Brewer's health after the game.
Sep 7 - 10:27 PM

Virginia Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer passed for 199 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-21 upset win over Ohio State on Saturday night.

He finished 23-for-36 and also threw a pair of interceptions. The final tally doesn't look spectacular, but make no mistake: Brewer played a key role in leading the Hokies' to a victory as a double-digit underdog against a vicious top-10 opponent on the road. The former Texas Tech Red Raider, who won a preseason competition with redshirt senior Mark Leal to replace Logan Thomas, made some critical throws to extend drives. Brewer's 10-yard scoring strike to Bucky Hodges with 8:44 left broke a 21-21 tie and seized momentum from the Buckeyes, who at that point had scored 14 straight points.

Former Texas Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer was named the starting signal-caller at Virginia Tech.

The Hokies kick off next Saturday against William & Mary. Brewer edged out redshirt senior Mark Leal, Logan Thomas' longtime backup. "Both of the guys gave great effort and played very well in preseason, making it a very difficult choice," Frank Beamer said in a statement released by the school. "It was a very close race and we're proud of both of them." VTU offensive coordinator Scott Loeffler told the media that both "would be needed" throughout the season. Brenden Motley is No. 3 on the depth chart.

Former Texas Tech QB Michael Brewer has transferred to Virginia Tech.

Brewer will be eligible to play immediately because he's scheduled to graduate this spring. He retains two seasons of eligibility. The former Red Raider hoped to transfer to TCU or Texas, but TTU wouldn't grant a release within the Big 12. Instead, Brewer will join the competition to replace quarterback Logan Thomas.

Texas Tech has lifted the transfer restrictions placed on former sophomore QB Michael Brewer.

The school initially prevented Brewer from considering schools in Texas, like TCU for example. Brewer is now allowed to freely pick a school, and we would not be surprised to see him stay in-state.

Texas Tech sophomore QB Michael Brewer is expected to begin practicing soon.

Brewer has been out with a back injury during preseason camp, allowing Baker Mayfied to run away with the starting job. "I definitely think when he gets healthy, we’ll see what he’s got. It’s been a long layoff for him, but he’s a talented kid and a talented player," head coach Kliff Kingsbury said

Texas Tech Kliff Kingsbury does not anticipate a quick return for redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer.

Brewer has not practiced for a month, and freshman walk-on Baker Mayfield has run away with the starting job since. "I think quite a bit," Kingsbury answered regarding how much practice time Brewer will need to catch up. "We have that bye week coming up, which should help, but I would assume it’s going to be an extended period of time before we feel like he’d be game ready."

Texas Tech redshirt junior QB Michael Brewer has a stress fracture of a vertebrae and likely will miss several weeks, according to beat writer Kirk Bohls.

Brewer likely would have opened the season as the starter if not for this back issue, which has limited his effectiveness throughout offseason camp. True freshman Baker Mayfield could benefit the most from the injury, but walk-on Davis Webb is also in the hunt for the starting gig. New head coach Kliff Kingsbury has some work to do.

Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury quick feet, a quick release, and accuracy are the three most important areas for young QBs to work on.

Kingsbury was asked which traits are most important in his scheme, and the head coach listed the aforementioned three in order. "Not all qbs have a monster arm, but those 3 things are all things that can be worked on a daily basis and improved through hard work," Kingsbury said.

Michael Brewer is the best of the backup quarterbacks behind Seth Doege.

Not only is Brewer the best of the backups, but he is not too far behind Doege. Of course Brewer, who redshirted last season as a freshman, has not thrown a college pass. Still, the experience he had last season with the scout team and his work in the spring have provided the coaching staff with a sense of ease should something happen to Doege.
