Josh Rosen walked onto the intramural fields on UCLAs campus Wednesday morning and headed directly to the sideline area where injured players gather to stretch.

The question was whether the hopes of the Bruins went with him.

Officially, there was no word on the injured quarterbacks status for UCLAs road game against Washington State on Saturday. Bruins Coach Jim Mora would not say whether Rosen participated in practice but did acknowledge that backup Mike Fafaul took more snaps than usual.

Mora also said that Rosen would have quite a bit of input as to whether he could return from the injuries to his lower body and shoulder area sustained against Arizona State last week. The coach noted that Rosens father, Charles, is a spine surgeon who could help his son assess the possible risks of playing again so quickly.

Hes a competitive guy, and he wants to play, Mora said of his quarterback. We just have to make sure that we make the right decision, not only short term but long term, for him.

At the end of day, you help him make the best decision for him, but you let him make that decision if its safe. Were not going to let him make a decision that puts himself in further jeopardy.

Rosen appeared unencumbered as he walked past reporters and was not wearing any kind of brace or protective gear. He has not missed a game because of injury in his 1 1/2 seasons with the team.

Mora said the experience Fafaul gained last week in the first extended action of his career should benefit him if hes needed against Washington State. The fifth-year senior completed three of 11 passes for 44 yards with two interceptions against the Sun Devils.
