Kingsbury: Brewer OK physically to go in, just have "to get him caught up"

Ever since Michael Brewer made a brief appearance three weeks ago, playing two series against Kansas, some have anticipated more playing time for the sophomore quarterback.

Not only has it not happened, but Davis Webb will start his fourth game in a row this week, Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said, and Webb and Baker Mayfield have taken the first- and second-team snaps in pre-game warmup. Brewer has suited up each of the last four games.

I asked Kingsbury on Monday if Brewer, who missed nearly all the August and September practices with a back injury, is fully available.

Bush doubtful to return this week, according to Kingsbury

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury seldom gives very detailed information regarding injuries and time frames for player returns, but he indicated on Monday that defensive lineman Dartwan Bush is doubtful for this week.

Bush suffered a sprained knee in the Oct. 12 game against Iowa State and has missed the last two games. The Red Raiders could have used him Saturday against Oklahoma, whose 526 yards with 277 rushing were season highs against Tech.

Those who thought a big collapse was in store for then-No. 10 Texas Tech might have to wait a while. "We're actually good," senior wide receiver Eric Ward said after the 38-30 loss to Oklahoma on Saturday.

Undefeated teams that call on Bob Stoops-coached squads in Norman don't have much history of success. Add Texas Tech to the list, even with Kliff Kingsbury trying everything he could to buck that trend.
