ARLINGTON, Texas — Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer went to the locker room with an injury in the second quarter of the Bears' matchup with Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship.

There has been no announcement as to how long he will be out. ESPN's Holly Rowe said referee Mike Defee approached Baylor coach Matt Rhule to further evaluate Brewer.

Brewer completed three of six passes for 15 yards before the injury, and he has thrown for 2,935 yards and 20 touchdowns on the season. For an offense that is already struggling to gain yards against the Sooner defense, losing its starting quarterback may prove to be a challenge for Baylor.
