AJ McCarron reportedly did not suffer fractured collarbone

AJ McCarron

The Buffalo Bills received some potentially good news about quarterback A.J. McCarron’s injury on Monday.

According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, McCarron did not suffer a fractured collarbone during Friday night’s preseason game against the Cleveland Browns.

The initial fear was that McCarron suffered a hairline fracture in his collarbone, which would have kept him out for several weeks at least. However, Schefter also reports that McCarron is expected to return to practice soon. He still may be dealing with a minor shoulder injury, but this explains why he was reportedly seeking a second opinion. That is also likely why Bills coach Sean McDermott refused to rule McCarron out from the team’s Week 1 starting quarterback competition on Sunday.

Buffalo announced on Monday that rookie Josh Allen will start in Sunday’s preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
