The clavicle break didn't show up on the x-ray, but they saw it when I had a cat-scan for the lung , and I think the fact that it wasn't a full break is why I didn't think there was one. But that means "conservative" treatment, meaning a sling and heal naturally, which will keep me off the bike for at least a few weeks especially adding the ribs in the equation.
I had the same issue. It took about 6 weeks to heal. Didn't show up on the x-ray initially as it was fractured inward. 6-8 weeks. I ditched the sling but didn't ride for a long time.

Get well soon but take your time.
