Draft Scout Josh Rosen News
11/07/16 - UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen underwent surgery Monday morning on his right shoulder for a soft tissue injury. UCLA said in a statement that the sophomore, who injured his shoulder during a 23-20 loss at Arizona State on Oct. 8, is expected to make a full recovery. Before the injury, Rosen had thrown for 1,915 yards and 10 touchdowns with five interceptions. Senior Mike Fafaul, a former walk-on, has led UCLA (3-6) in Rosen's absence. - AP Sports
11/01/16 - QB Josh Rosen is likely done for the season and may need surgery on his throwing shoulder, multiple outlets reported Tuesday. Rosen, a sophomore, was been sidelined since sustaining a sprained right shoulder plus nerve damage on Oct. 8 against Arizona State. Rosen is slated to have an MRI exam on Thursday and those results will determine whether he will require a surgical procedure.
10/25/16 - UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen is dealing with a nerve issue in his throwing shoulder, which has kept the sophomore out of the team's last two games. Bruins coach Jim Mora offered details on Rosen's injury for the first time Monday, having previously referred to it only as an upper-body injury after Rosen landed hard on his throwing shoulder in the fourth quarter of a 23-20 loss at Arizona State. UCLA has an open week this week before playing a night game on Nov. 3 at No. 23 Colorado , but Mora does not know if the extended break will be sufficient to allow Rosen to return to action.
"He's been trying to throw and it just hasn't got to the point where he can cut it loose yet," Mora said. "It's just a matter of when is it going to start firing again. He's getting all the treatment he can get, doing everything he can do." Redshirt senior Mike Fafaul, a former walk-on, has started the last two games against Washington State and No. 17 Utah. Fafaul has thrown for 722 yards and eight touchdowns against six interceptions, setting school single-game records for pass attempts and completions in the 52-45 loss to the Utes. Fafaul praised Rosen for the help he has provided in understanding opposing defenses. - AP Sports
10/11/16 - UCLA coach Jim Mora is "hopeful" quarterback Josh Rosen will be able to play at Washington State on Saturday. Regardless of Rosen's status, there are fundamental issues for the Bruins offense to address. Rosen was twice knocked out of the 23-20 loss at Arizona State. A right leg injury left the sophomore limping in the first half, and a hard landing on his throwing shoulder in the fourth quarter sidelined him for the rest of the game.
Mora would not go into specifics regarding either and instead took the approach used by NHL coaches, referring to Rosen's ailments as upper body and lower body injuries. Still, Mora expects Rosen to exhaust every option to be able to play against the Cougars. "He doesn't want to let anyone down and loves to compete," Mora said. "I was impressed by the way he came back in and fought through some obvious pain and delivered a pretty good performance. I think he showed some grit, some toughness and I think his teammates appreciated that." Rosen threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns with one interception against the Sun Devils. Former walk-on Mike Fafaul was 3 of 11 passing for 44 yards and two interceptions in relief of Rosen, neither quarterback getting any help from the beleaguered UCLA run game as Nate Starks and Soso Jamabo rushed for just 40 yards on 17 carries. - AP Sports
10/02/16 - UCLA coach Jim Mora challenged his offense at halftime, asking them to play at the same level shown on defense and special teams through the first 30 minutes. The Bruins responded, with Josh Rosen throwing two of his three touchdowns and rushing for one touchdown after the ultimatum, and UCLA pulled away from Arizona 45-24 on Saturday night. Rosen was 20 of 37 for 350 yards, Kenneth Walker had four catches for 114 yards with a pair of touchdowns and Darren Andrews added 108 yards receiving and a 26-yard TD run. "If we could just find a way to put it together as a football team we could be pretty darn dynamic, and that's the challenge," Mora said. "I think it's pretty evident we can play some really good defense. We can play some good special teams. We can play some good offense. We just got to do it all at the same time."
UCLA (3-2, 1-1 Pac-12) struggled to run the ball for long stretches, but it didn't matter as the injury-riddled Wildcats (2-3, 0-2) saw their offensive ranks further depleted. Quarterback Brandon Dawkins took a big hit from linebacker Kenny Young in the second quarter and was replaced after halftime. Running back Nick Wilson came up limping late in the first quarter. Right tackle Gerhard de Beer and right tackle Jacob Alsadek also suffered undisclosed injuries, while left guard Freddie Tagaloa did not travel with the team. - AP Sports
