Baylor burns redshirt for freshman QB Charlie Brewer, pulls him after 2 plays

Baylor freshman quarterback Charlie Brewer saw his first playing time of the year against Kansas State, only to get taken out after two snaps.

Brewer replaced starter Zach Smith to start a Baylor drive with 6:35 remaining in the first half, likely burning his redshirt for the year. Brewer ran the ball once for a loss of 1 yard. He handed off to running back Trestan Ebner on the next play for no gain, but a holding penalty negated the play to make it 2nd-and-21. At that point, Smith came back in the game.

Smith was 12-of-15 passing before getting pulled. Brewer was one of four freshman put in to start the drive. The Baylor football radio broadcast speculated the personnel changes were meant to “send a message” to the team.

Brewer was acting a Smith’s backup while Anu Solomon is in concussion protocol. Barring an injury, those two plays likely mean Baylor won’t be able to redshirt Brewer this season.

This story will be updated.
