UCLA HC Jim Mora said that he is "very, very hopeful" that sophomore QB Josh Rosen (shoulder) will be able to play against Utah on Saturday.

While Rosen did not play against Washington State over the weekend due to his balky shoulder, Mora noted that he believes the much-hyped sophomore gunslinger was "pretty darned close" to being able to take the field against the Cougars. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder initially sustained the injury after landing hard on the shoulder while taking a sack near the end of a Week 6 loss to Arizona State. Should he need another week off, Mike Fafaul will earn a second consecutive start.

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen (shoulder) will not play in Saturday's game against Washington State.

Rosen attempted to throw in pregame, but he was in visible pain and it was clear that he was not healthy enough for the start. Mike Fafaul is taking on starting duties in his place. There should be a further update on Rosen's health once the practice week gets underway.

UCLA HC Jim Mora said that he will not allow sophomore QB Josh Rosen (shoulder) to play if it jeopardizes his health.

Rosen injured his shoulder near the end of Saturday's loss to Arizona State. Mora spoke to his confidence in the training staff, saying that "we've got him surrounded by people who understand what's going on and I think at the end of the day you help him make the best decision for him, but you let him make the right decision. If it's safe." Should Rosen be unable to play against Washington State this coming weekend, Mike Fafaul will likely draw the start, as he reportedly took all of the first-team reps in practice on Wednesday.

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen (shoulder) was held out of practice on Wednesday.

This according to UCLA LT Conor McDermott, who told the media that backup QB Mike Fafaul took all the reps at Wednesday's practice. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Rosen was battered in Saturday's loss to Arizona State, sustaining a minor lower body injury in the first half and then a potentially more serious shoulder injury after halftime. We'll update you on Rosen's status for Saturday's game against Washington State when more is known.

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen suffered a pair of injuries in Saturday's 23-20 loss to Arizona State.

Rosen was knocked out briefly with a minor lower body injury in the first half. He returned to action after that one, but the right shoulder injury he suffered near the end of the contest could prove more problematic. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound sophomore was unable to finish out the game. His status for next Saturday's game against Washington State should become more clear over the course of the practice week.
Oct 9 - 4:45 PM

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen completed 20-of-37 passes for 350 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 45-24 win over Arizona.

Not the most efficient outing on earth for Rosen, but his performance against the Wildcats was a strong step forward overall. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder threw two of his three touchdown passes in the second quarter as the Bruins jumped out to a 24-10 advantage at the half. Arizona would never seriously threaten that lead in the second half. Through five games, Rosen has thrown for 1,515 yards (60.1% completions) with an 8/4 TD/INT ratio. Saturday's three-touchdown performance was just his second multi-touchdown showing this season. He should be able to feast against Arizona State next weekend.
Oct 2 - 1:04 PM

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen completed 18-of-27 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 22-13 loss to Stanford.

While Rosen has all the potential in the world and showed it on individual throws in Saturday's loss, this was another underwhelming performance overall. His lone touchdown pass of the game came near the end of the first quarter, when he hooked up with Nate Iese from 10 yards out. And that was it in terms of touchdowns. For the season as a whole, Rosen has thrown for 1,165 yards with a 5/4 TD/INT ratio. He has notched multiple touchdown tosses in just one game.
Sep 24 - 11:55 PM

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen completed 23-of-37 passes for 298 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 42-21 win over UNLV.

Rosen wasn't horrible by any stretch of the imagine, but you would like to see more statistical production on 37 pass attempts, particularly against a lesser opponent like UNLV. Chosen Rosen has not thrown for multiple touchdowns in either of UCLA's games this season. Fantasy owners should exercise patience here. UCLA will square off with BYU next weekend as Rosen tries to get his season on track.
Sep 10 - 11:38 PM

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen completed 26-of-46 passes for 343 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions in Saturday's 31-24 overtime loss at Texas A&M.

Despite what the final gaudy yardage total may say, Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis had Rosen and HC Jim Mora's numbers in this one. The Aggies caved UCLA's line with regularity and harassed the young signal-caller into discombobulation. Rosen looked confused at various times, for example dropping a snap and then hitting a wide-open defender for what could have been a disastrous interception late in the fourth quarter. Of course, Rosen's NFL gun was also on display. In the same frame, during a frenzied comeback, Rosen scrambled to the right and flung a bomb to WR Kenneth Walker that was beautifully dropped between a pair of Aggie defenders on a 62-yard touchdown connection. Rosen will be fine, but UCLA's offensive line remains a cause for concern.
Sep 3 - 8:13 PM

Greg Gabriel spoke with one "NFL personnel man" who said UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen "better drop entitlement attitude if he wants to be as good as he thinks he is."

We hear NFL personnel people complain about a quarterback's attitude every single year. Why? Because there are hundreds of "NFL personnel" people, and each has an opinion. It is worth understanding that one opinion does not mean the entire NFL thinks that way. Plus, Rosen does not turn 20 years old until February. Rosen and Deshaun Watson are clearly the two most talented quarterbacks in college football at this time, with Watson eligible for the 2017 NFL Draft and Rosen eligible in 2018.

At Pac-12 media days, UCLA coach Jim Mora compared UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen at this stage in his career to where Peyton Manning was at the same point.

"I'm not comparing him to Peyton Manning in the NFL," Mora told Sports Illustrated. "But at this stage of his career -- essentially the same point -- he's the same guy in terms of football intelligence and work ethic." NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah says Rosen is the most gifted quarterback in college football. Rosen isn't eligible for the draft until after next season.
Aug 13 - 8:08 PM

An opposing Pac-12 coach says UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen is the best quarterback in the nation.

"The quarterback is the best guy out there, and I mean the best guy in the country right now. That's what we thought, anyway," the coach said. "Man, he is the real deal and we've got to deal with him for two more years. He didn't play like a freshman. I think sometimes he made mistakes trying to do a little too much, but they want him to be aggressive and use his arm because he's got the confidence and ability to put the ball where he wants it. He'll learn when to pull it back with time, but there's no doubt he's going to be a big-time pro." UCLA coach Jim Mora has suggested that Rosen would have been the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft if he'd been eligible.
Aug 13 - 3:49 PM

UCLA HC Jim Mora indicated at Pac-12 media days that he doesn't want to place too heavy of a load on sophomore QB Josh Rosen.

"The danger is that you give him too much," Mora said, "that you overestimate what a young person can handle given all the other stresses they have in their life with school and social and just being a young person." While he doesn't want to overload Rosen, Mora has repeatedly praised the 6-foot-4, 210-pound gunslinger to the rafters this offseason and his admiration for the young signal-caller is impossible to miss. Said Mora, "He's got tremendous arm talent. He's very, very smart. He has a great feel for the game, both offensively and defensively. He can make all the throws." Beyond the arm-talent, Rosen's brain is already drawing rave reviews.'s Lance Zierlein has referred to him having "advanced football intelligence," while Mora himself has talked about opening up the offense in order to best utilize Rosen's smarts.

NFL evaluators will get a "truer look" at UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen's pro potential in new offensive coordinator Kennedy Polamalu's pro-style scheme, writes's Lance Zierlein.

"Quarterbacks always find their way toward the top of the draft board, but Rosen won't be a late riser -- he's already being monitored as a top-rated prospect after just one season," Zierlein wrote. "Rosen's quick release and advanced football intelligence should help move the hype train along at a very quick pace, but deservedly so." The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder accumulated 3,670 yards with a 23/11 TD/INT ratio as a true freshman last fall. Most of his supporting skill position cast is now in the NFL, but Rosen should be just fine.
