NFL Rumors: New England Patriots Rookie Receiver Suffers Collarbone Injury

New England Patriot's rookie wide receiver Tyquan Thornton reportedly suffered a collarbone injury Friday, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport

Thornton, who was drafted by New England in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft, has impressed in camp thus far and is to play a vital role in the Patriots offense, Rapoport adds. A timetable for a return remains unclear. 

The 22-year-old prospect out of Baylor impressed the Patriot's brass enough to be drafted as high as he did and also recently caught a touchdown in preseason as well.

In college last season Thornton played in 14 games where he caught 62 receptions for 948 yards, 10 touchdowns, and helped lead his school to a 12-2 record.
