UCLA parted ways with Kennedy Polamalu after the school's 4-8 season, which featured a limited Rosen due to a shoulder injury. Rosen is widely viewed as a premier quarterback prospect, but a lost 2016 season puts plenty of pressure on the 2017 campaign. Nov 28 - 9:18 AM

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen expects to fully recover from right shoulder surgery, and head coach Jim Mora reiterated that statement.

As you know, Rosen has been sidelined since October 8. He underwent surgery on Monday for a soft tissue injury. A timetable for the offseason, in terms of practice and recovery, is not available at this time. This will certainly pop up as a topic of discussion during the 2017 season, after which Rosen will be draft eligible.

A UCLA spokesman confirmed that sophomore QB Josh Rosen (shoulder) will miss the remainder of the 2016 season.

On Tuesday, HC Jim Mora would not rule Rosen out for the year, but any potential return was always going to be long shot. A return in 2016 is no longer in the cards. Rosen is not scheduled to undergo surgery. Most encouragingly, UCLA's spokesman indicated that the star-crossed sophomore does not have nerve damage in his shoulder. While there is no timetable for Rosen's return, a more clear picture of his health should begin to emerge in the offseason. As for the remainder of the current campaign, Mike Fafaul will finish out as quarterback starter for UCLA's final three games.

UCLA HC Jim Mora would not rule out the possibility of sophomore QB Josh Rosen (shoulder) returning before the end of the season.

Multiple reports on Tuesday have UCLA shutting down Rosen for UCLA's final four games of the season due to a shoulder injury with possible nerve damage. Mora indicated that there is no such damage in his sophomore gunslinger's shoulder, though, and said. "I would put nothing past Josh with regards to what his future this year looks like." Stranger things have happened, but we think Mora might just be yelling at the rain, here. UCLA is 3-5 on the season. There is no reason, at all, to risk Rosen's health for what is essentially a cooked campaign at this point. Mora's job security may well be riding on that arm's success or failure next season.

UCLA sophomore QB josh Rosen will likely be held out for the remainder of the season with his ongoing shoulder injury, according to Bruin Report's Tracy Pierson.

The news is not surprising, as Rosen has not been healthy in practice sessions open to the media. Add on the fact that head coach Jim Mora has been cagey to offer a timetable and UCLA is 3-5 on the season, and Rosen has no real reason to come back during the 2016 season. Hopefully the nerve issue can be overcome, as Rosen has displayed impressive talent in a number of games.

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen continues to be extremely limited in practice while dealing with a nerve issue in his throwing shoulder.

In the 15 minutes of practice beat writer Ben Bolch observed, "The right-handed Rosen gingerly lobbed a few short passes with his left hand before appearing to intentionally short-arm the ball on a handful of right-handed passes." Rosen has not played in a game situation since October 8. At 3-5 on the season, UCLA is in contention for absolutely nothing. We would not be surprised to see Rosen sit out the remainder of the year.

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen is dealing with a nerve issue in his throwing shoulder.

This is why Rosen has missed the last two games along with numerous practices. It would not be a shock for UCLA, currently 3-5, to shut down Rosen for the remainder of the season when keeping his long-term health and future in mind. On the season, Rosen has factored into 12 touchdowns and five interceptions. As of now there is no timetable for his return. This shoulder issue could come up via anonymous scouts in a year and a half.

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen (shoulder) did not start against Utah on Saturday.

Rosen missed last weekend's loss to Washington State due to a shoulder injury suffered in Week 6 against Arizona State. While he returned to practice on Wednesday and Jim Mora expressed optimism that he would be able to play against Utah, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound sophomore looks like he will need a little more time. Mike Fafaul is again starting in his place on Saturday.
Oct 22 - 4:50 PM

UCLA sophomore QB Josh Rosen returned to practice on Wednesday after missing the school's game against Washington State with a shoulder and knee injury.

Rosen was sporting a brace on his knee and also dealt with shoulder injuries leading up to last weekend's contest. Head coach Jim More said the passer was "close" to playing against the Cougars. Rosen's season got off to a rocky start against A&M, but from a production standpoint he was on a bit of a roll, throwing nine touchdowns compared to two interceptions since. UCLA has lost three of their last four.
Oct 19 - 11:07 AM

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.
Oct 15 - 11:29 PM

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.
