Rosen completed 22 of 39 attempts for 208 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions during Sunday's 26-14 loss to Kansas City.
The rookie has been plagued by turnovers of late, with seven interceptions and three fumbles (two lost) over the past four weeks. Playing behind a Cardinals offensive line that entered Week 10 allowing 57 quarterback hits on the year (10th-most), Rosen has been unable to get comfortable in the pocket all season. The fact that he's completed fewer than 58 percent of his passes in six of seven appearances reflects as such. He could be a viable streaming option in Week 11 against Oakland however, facing a Raiders defense that came into the weekend with a 20.4 percent pressure rate (lowest in the NFL since 2013).
Rosen completed 23 of 40 pass attempts for 252 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 18-15 win over the 49ers.
Although Rosen was held in check for much of the afternoon, he came through when it mattered most. The rookie threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald early in the fourth quarter and found Christian Kirk from nine yards out for the winning score with just 34 seconds left on the clock. Rosen set a new career high in passing yards while throwing multiple touchdown passes for the first time in his career, and although it's early, perhaps the change to interim offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich will have a positive impact on his fantasy value. He'll enjoy a bye next week before taking on the Chiefs in Week 10.
Rosen has come full circle in one week's time. Since a dreadful five-turnover performance last Thursday against the Broncos in which he suffered a sprained left toe, he has got rid of a walking boot Monday and returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday before Thursday's development. In his previous start against Sunday's opponent (the 49ers), Rosen completed 10 of 25 passes for 170 yards and one touchdown Week 5.
Rosen was hassled into the worst performance of his brief career last Thursday against the Broncos, tossing three interceptions (two returned for touchdowns), fumbling three times (losing two of them) and taking on six sacks. During one of the QB takedowns late in the game, he came up with a limp. After he was diagnosed with a sprained left toe, he required a walking boot, which he wore over the weekend to take pressure off his foot. Rosen got out of the boot Monday and returned to practice Wednesday, though his level of participation is unclear.
Rosen (toe) ditched his walking boot Monday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. "He's doing well and he should be ready to go on Wednesday," coach Steve Wilks said.
Rosen suffered a sprained toe during a horrific performance last Thursday against the Broncos in which he tossed three interceptions (two of them returned for touchdowns) and fumbled three times (two lost). In the wake of the loss, he suffered a sprained toe, which required a walking boot on his left foot to alleviate pressure. While he's expected to miss no time as a result of the injury, Rosen won't be able to prove his health (or lack thereof) until the Cardinals log an official practice Wednesday.
