Yes. Probably misses a couple months

Not sure I'd call a collarbone injury "the neck area", especially when neck injuries usually refer to the back of the neck

Very unfortunate.  Both he and Derwin James had such amazing starts to their careers but have been plagued by injuries the last 2 years.  Hopefully they can bounce back and return to their All-Pro form.

That's painful, but players can return after a month or so. Easier to break again though.

Indeed! Wasn't this the end of Charles Rogers career? Collarbone just kept on breaking...3 times, I think?

Damn...I think we are seeing the consequences to a full TC and preseason.  

I get it with Jarwin, but a collarbone is more or less a contact injury - it's not like repeated contact would make the collarbone resistant to breaking (it would be the opposite, in fact).

I don't know if there's anything that could have been done, but I'm not a doctor - I'm just connecting some loosely spaced dots on this one.

Good point.
