The UCLA Bruins appear to have dodged a bullet this Saturday. Despite losing to the Washington Huskies by a score of 44-23, their biggest concern was that of the status of quarterback Josh Rosen.
The 6-foot-4 Rosen left the game early with an apparent hand injury.
After being looked at by the team, it isn’t believed to be too serious. The team will continue to monitor his status as the week progresses, but he is expected to be alright.
College football insider Bruce Feldman provided the update on Sunday.

The loss on Saturday dropped the Bruins to 4-4 on the season.
With four games remaining this season, the Bruins will need to win at least two more to make themselves bowl eligible. They have Utah, Arizona State, USC, and Cal left on their schedule, and if Rosen is out for any length of time, it could deal their chances at postseason play a serious blow.
Rosen has been vocal about his desire to make the jump to the NFL at the end of the season. Many believe his raw tools mean he remains a top 10 selection despite his struggling to avoid throwing interceptions.
