UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen has reportedly cleared concussion protocol and is in line to start the Bruins' home game Saturday night against Arizona State at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times provided the status update Friday.
Rosen originally suffered the injury during UCLA's 44-23 loss to Washington on Oct. 28. He missed last week's 48-17 blowout defeat at the hands of Utah while recovering from the concussion.
He expressed optimism earlier in the week about getting back in the lineup to face the Sun Devils as the Bruins attempt to end their two-game losing skid.
"Absolutely. I feel great," Rosen told reporters Wednesday. "Hopefully I test out of this in the next day or two, and I'll be good to go."
The 20-year-old California native is a potential top prospect in the 2018 NFL draft. He's completed 63.1 percent of his throws for 2,713 yards with 20 touchdown passes and eight interceptions across eight appearances so far in his junior campaign.
Rosen's expected return should invigorate a UCLA offense that racked up just 249 total yards and 12 first downs in last week's lopsided loss to the Utes.
