Mayfield moving well, but not in uniform

Baker Mayfield wasn’t on the field with the other Texas Tech quarterbacks when practice ended Tuesday. As the workout concluded and media assembled for post-practice interviews, Michael Brewer, Davis Webb and Clayton Nicholas were in uniform with the quarterbacks group, but not Mayfield.

However, the Tech freshman was walking around afterward, his knee wrapped but moving with no apparent problems. It was the second day in a row he wasn't on the field at the end of practice.

Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury wasn’t made available to the media Tuesday, and Tech has declined interview requests for Brewer this week. Kingsbury doesn’t permit freshmen, Mayfield and Webb among them, to do interviews.

Mayfield has started every game this season for 5-0 Tech, but left the Red Raiders’ 54-16 victory Saturday at Kansas with a knee injury. Kingsbury said on Monday a medical examination showed no structural damage to Mayfield’s knee, adding that he had no timetable for Mayfield’s return.
