New York Giants Rookie Safety Breaks Collarbone

New York Giants rookie Dane Belton has broken his collarbone. The team is hoping for him to be ready for the start of the regular season, but that isn't a guarantee given the severity of this injury.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan recently reported that Belton had been impressing the Giants at training camp. Thus, this news is certainly a notable blow to both parties. Belton is trying to cement himself a starting role on the club, while the Giants are desperate for something good to happen for them.

Here's to hoping that Belton has a speedy recovery and can be good to go for Week 1 of the season. Time will tell what happens on that front.
