The sprained neck of of Jacob Trouba could keep the Winnipeg Jets defenseman out for as long as a month.

Trouba left Friday nights game on a stretcher and initially could not move his limbs. He was released from the hospital after x-rays and other tests were conducted and took to twitter to thank fans for their support.

Trouba will be in a brace for at least two weeks after missing a check and going face first into the boards.

The Jets have already placed the 19-year-old rookie on injured reserve and called up Adam Pardy from the AHL’s St. John’s IceCaps.
