Brock Huard had some words for Josh Rosen. Jim Mora had some words for Brock Huard.
On Saturday, Rosen left the Washington game in the third quarter with an injury to his non-throwing hand, which has been deemed not serious, though Rosen’s availability for Friday night’s upcoming game with Utah remains in question. When Rosen donned a sweatshirt on the sidelines, Huard and the ESPN broadcasting team questioned his toughness, comparing the UCLA junior to quarterbacks who have played hurt, noting that NFL scouts question his toughness given that it was a finger injury to his non-throwing hand.
On Monday, Mora came to his quarterback’s defense.
“I would put very little stock in what Brock Huard has to say,” Mora told reporters. “I think it’s ludicrous that anybody would question Josh Rosen’s toughness when they don’t know the nature of his injury. So, in all fairness to my comment, for a broadcaster who knows zippo about what’s going on down there, to question the toughness of Josh Rosen, it’s, it’s — I guess it drives ratings. I don’t know.”
