Virginia Tech quarterback Michael Brewer left during the third quarter of Monday night’s game against the Ohio State Buckeyes, after suffering an injury to his left shoulder. Brewer held his left shoulder immediately following a crushing hit and on the way to the locker room.
Shortly after the big hit, the Hokies confirmed that Brewer would not return.
Brewer was hit by Ohio State defensive lineman Adolphus Washington, while attempting a throw.
After undergoing testing, it was announced that Brewer suffered a broken collarbone that will keep him out of action for four to eight weeks. Brewer is expected to miss games against: Furman, Purdue, East Carolina and Pittsburgh at the minimum.
Until then, it looks like Brendan Motley is the man under center for Virginia Tech and the Hokies will need to rally around him.
“I put that kid through hell, and he played his tail off today,” said Virginia Tech offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler, via ESPN. “I said this to our team: ‘You can sit, you can feel sorry for yourself, you can do this.’ We’re going to rally around [Brenden] Motley.”
