Brewer, a second-year pro who spent last season on the 49ers' practice squad, said he'll have surgery Friday.
A longshot to make the San Francisco roster, Brewer was injured during practice Tuesday when he caught a pass, attempted a violent cut and his knee buckled.
``It's just a road bump,'' Brewer said. ``I'll be back in the offseason, ready to compete again.''
Brewer, who wasn't drafted after his senior season at Wyoming in 2005, wasn't allowed to play in NFL Europe this summer, because league doctors couldn't detect an ACL in his left knee. He tore that ligament four years ago.
