Rosier’s completion percentages were up and down before he suffered what the Herald referred to as a shoulder contusion. Rosier discussed the injury and his recovery with reporters earlier this week.

Rosier said that after the North Carolina game his should was…

"“so damaged…(he) could barely pick up the ball’…You can tell that my arm is feeling better,’ (his passes have) more zip’…You can tell that some of the throws that I might have been under-throwing, now [I’m] hitting the guys in stride.” “My shoulder got really banged up and after that it was bothering me throughout the year. Having three weeks off just to heal and rest and work with Vinny [Scavo] and the training staff has been amazing.’’"

It’s hard to know if the initial injury game against North Carolina or earlier. Rosier has had an up and down season with his accuracy.

In five of the six games before they played North Carolina Rosier completed at least 57 percent of his passes. The only game he was under that mark was against Florida State when Rosier completed 19 of 40 passes.
