At the end of the first half of UCLA’s Friday night game vs. Cal, Bruins quarterback Josh Rosen was tossed to the ground and was slow to get up. He remained in the game for the next two plays, which were two handoffs of little consequence, but when he went to the sideline, he was seen speaking to UCLA staffers, slamming his helmet on the bench in anger.
When the second half began, Rosen didn’t join his team out of the locker room, relieved of his quarterback duties by freshman Devon Modster. On the opening drive of the second half, UCLA went three-and-out.
Modster made his first career start against Utah on Nov. 3, when he finished 8 of 12 for 103 yards and a touchdown in a 48-17 loss.
Rosen was 13 of 18 for 202 yards and 2 touchdowns in the first half as UCLA led 17-9.
Rosen was on the sidelines in street clothes, presumably finished for the game. If UCLA loses, it will likely be the final game of his college career, one mired in injury.
