Four-star prospect Nick Ruffin, a cornerback out of Atlanta's St. Pius X who committed to Auburn on May 25, appears to have a shoulder injury. Ruffin tweeted out an X-ray image on Saturday showing a fractured collarbone.

We're not doctors here, but playing with a collarbone injury like that seems like it would be pretty painful. But judging by his Twitter feed, Ruffin doesn't seem to concerned with the injury. Hopefully, it doesn't get any worse.
Ruffin is a rated as a four-star player by 247 Sports, Scout and ESPN, and a three-star by Rivals. Scout says he's the No. 12 cornerback in America, while 247 lists him as No. 14 at his position and ESPN ranks him 20th-best.
