Not really. The vast majority of meteors are the size of grains of sand. There are a few that would measure a couple inches across. the chances of a large rock being in the debris trail which causes the meteor shower are slim to none.

A meteor shower is caused by bits of debris left behind by a comet. Comets are made of ice, not rock. Nothing dangerous there.
