UCLA has been without its star quarterback for the past two weeks and its record reflects that. Josh Rosen has been dealing with a host of injuries, but until know their severity had not been disclosed.
As it turns out, the Bruin field general is dealing with a “nerve issue” in his throwing shoulder.
Rosen, a sophomore, injured both his leg and shoulder in UCLA’s game against Arizona State. Second-string senior quarterback Mike Fafaul has played well in his absence, but is yet to win a game. Fafaul has thrown for 722 yards and eight touchdowns, but has also throw six interceptions.
If the Bruins have an eye to salvage their postseason hopes this year, they’ll need their stud quarterback back as soon as he is physically able.
There is currently no timetable for Rosen’s return. Coach Mora has been mums the word about Rosen’s status since he first sustained the injury, providing no specifics.
Following the game against Utah all he said was he was “not worried about Josh.”
On the year, Rosen has 1,915 yards and 10 touchdowns. Everyone is pulling for a speedy recovery.
