According to our friends over at Bruins Nation, reports are rolling in that UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen is likely going to miss the remainder of the season. On October 8th in the Bruins game against Arizona State Rosen injured his shoulder which later turned out to be a shoulder sprain that caused nerve damage.
While there has been no confirmation (as of this writing) from UCLA coach Jim Mora or the University that Rosen is out, this is apparently the type of injury that is tough to predict because there is not a standard time table for when or even if the player can return to action after the injury. Some players can come back after a few weeks and some may require surgery to repair the damage that could result in a recovery that lasts months or even longer. Some quarterbacks have also had their football careers ended because of this type of injury.
According to Bruce Feldman at Fox Sports it sounds like Rosen will get an MRI on Thursday to explore the extend of the nerve damage and determine if he will need surgery or not.
Things had not been going well for the Bruins this season as many wondered if UCLA had the necessary pieces in place to switch to a more pro-style offense. Judging by their 684 rushing yards in 8 games it seems safe to assume that maybe they do not.
Many national experts picked the now 3-5 UCLA Bruins to not only win the Pac-12 but also be a dark-horse candidate for the playoffs. UCLA seems to be headed in the complete opposite direction as USC. The Bruins have are on a 3-game losing streak and have lost 4 of their last 5 games. UCLA only has wins over UNLV, BYU, and Arizona.
