Brewer, a first-year Longhorn who had seen extensive playing time as a freshman this season, had been starting at tight end since the second game of the season when Texas lost junior tight end Garrett Gray to a knee injury.
The loss of Gray came after Texas lost senior tight end Andrew Beck to a broken ankle during fall camp in mid-August.
Brewer initially sustained the injury at practice this past Thursday before Texas traveled to Morgantown to take on the Mountaineers in what would end up being the sixth win of the season.
Brewer will end his freshman season with nine receptions for 80 yards and two touchdowns.
With Beck, Gray and Brewer out, the Longhorns will look to lean on Chris Warren, who recently converted to H-Back after starting the season at running back, as well as graduate transfer Kendall Moore, who recorded his first catch and touchdown of the season all in one play against the Mountaineers this past Saturday.
Texas hosts Texas Tech in Austin on Friday to close out its regular season.
