Baylor freshman WR/RB Trestan Ebner caught five passes for 106 yards and two touchdown passes, and ran for 53 yards in a 38-36 loss to West Virginia on Saturday.

Ebner had played sparingly in the first six games for Baylor, but the freshman tailback got a chance to play with fellow frosh QB Charlie Brewer, and the two looked to be in sync from the moment Brewer came in the game. They hooked up on a 52-yarder to start the fourth quarter, and Brewer found the playmaker again for a nine-yard score to make it 38-36 with just 17 seconds left. Ebner has certainly earned more touches out of the backfield going forward, starting with Texas next week.

Baylor freshman QB Charlie Brewer came in relief and threw for two scores on 8-of-13 passing in a 38-36 loss to West Virginia on Saturday.

He also ran for 48 yards on 10 carries. Well, here's some optimism for you. Brewer came in for Zach Smith, and outside of a few missed balls, looked like a future star for the Bears. Both of his scores went to fellow freshman Trestan Ebner. There's a strong chance you'll see Brewer start for Baylor next week against Texas.
Oct 22 - 12:25 AM

Baylor sophomore WR Denzel Mims caught seven passes for 132 yards in a 38-36 loss to West Virginia on Saturday.

Mims (6'4/180) continues to put up big numbers, even as the Bears remain without a win. The only thing he didn't do was score, but Baylor certainly doesn't score 36 points without the talented sophomore wideout keeping drives alive. The Bears will look to pick up their first win next week against the Longhorns of Texas.

Baylor freshman WR R.J. Sneed left Saturday's game against West Virginia due to a knee injury.

Sneed had noticeable trouble putting weight on his leg after coming down injured. He should be considered doubtful to return to Saturday's contest.

Rivals recruiting analyst Nick Krueger passes along that Missouri remains a threat to flip Baylor three-star 2018 verbal RB commit Craig Williams.

"Baylor’s rushing attack hasn’t featured much variety in terms of getting different players involved," Krueger writes, "and hasn’t incorporated its backs in the passing attack either, two things that should be of importance to Williams." In addition to Missouri, Houston and Minnesota are two teams to watch as we near winter. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound Williams ranks as Rivals' No. 17 all-purpose back in the 2018 class.

Baylor HC Matt Rhule said that freshman RB Johnathan Lovett (toe) will likely miss Saturday's game against West Virginia.

Lovett injured his toe against Oklahoma State in Saturday's defeat. The 6-foot-1, 194-pound true freshman has rushed for 389 yards (5.4 YPC) and three touchdowns in six games this season. Expect JaMycal Hasty and Terrance Williams to take the bulk of carries versus the Mountaineers on Saturday unless Lovett manages to join them via a strong comeback over the remainder of the practice week.
Oct 18 - 10:41 PM

Baylor redshirt senior DE K.J. Smith (shin splints) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against West Virginia.

Smith (6'1/260) has been sidelined by shin splints since the season-opener. There remains no timetable for his return to the field. A year ago, he registered 67 tackles (12.0 for loss), seven sacks and a forced fumble.
Oct 18 - 9:59 PM

Baylor HC Matt Rhule expects senior T Mo Porter (lower body) to play against West Virginia this weekend.

Porter, the team's best offensive lineman, has been in-and-out of the lineup this season due to a suspension and injuries.
Oct 18 - 6:59 PM

Baylor HC Matt Rhule hasn't made a decision on freshman RB Johnathan Lovett's (toe) availability for this weekend's game against West Virginia.

Lovett (6'1/194) was scratched from Monday's practice with a toe injury suffered in the Oklahoma State loss. JaMycal Hasty and Terrance Williams would be in line for more touches if he's ruled out against the Mountaineers.
Oct 17 - 4:37 PM

Baylor HC Matt Rhule says redshirt sophomore WR Pooh Stricklin (foot) will likely miss Saturday's game against West Virginia.

Stricklin (6'1/195) had previously been considered day-to-day. He sprained his foot against Oklahoma two weeks ago.
Oct 17 - 2:13 PM

Baylor freshman RB Johnathan Lovett (toe) is day-to-day for the Bears ahead of their game against West Virginia.

Lovett (6'1/194) was able to earn the start last week against Oklahoma State, but apparently injured his toe at some point in that contest. JaMycal Hasty (knee) is back for the Bears, so if Lovett is unable to go, it most likely means more carries for Terrance Williams as his backup.
Oct 16 - 10:55 PM

Baylor redshirt sophomore WR Pooh Stricklin (foot) is considered day-to-day for the Bears.

Stricklin (6'1/195) picked up the injury against Oklahoma two weeks ago in their near-upset of the Sooners. If Stricklin can't go, it'll mean even more targets for Denzel Mims and company.
Oct 16 - 7:15 PM

Baylor redshirt senior DE K.J. Smith (shin splints) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Oklahoma State.

Smith (6'1/260) played in the opener, but has not taken the field since. He is potentially dealing with a stress fracture. There remains no current timetable for his return. It's an unfortunate deficit for the Bears, as the redshirt senior posted 67 tackles (12.0 for loss) seven sacks and a forced fumble last season.
Oct 13 - 5:53 PM

Baylor freshman DT James Lynch is being worked out at punter.

The Bears are looking for a replacement following starting P Drew Galitz's ACL tear. Traditional replacement options such as Connor Martin (placekicker) and Peter Webster (Galitz's backup) are in play for Saturday's game against Oklahoma State, but Lynch represents by far the most fun possibility. The 6-foot-4, 285-pounder averaged 43 yards on 27 punts in high school. It will be one of the immediate highlights of the year if the big freshman punts in a game this season.
Oct 12 - 6:23 PM

Baylor HC Matt Rhule said that redshirt sophomore CB Blake Lynch's transition from wide receiver has "saved" the team.

Lynch (6'3/210) moved from wideout to corner prior to the season. The Bears have dealt with a number of injuries in the secondary, making his smooth transition all the more important. The redshirt sophomore has recorded 14 tackles with four passes defended this season.
