In brief: Depends
The answer depends upon where the tear occurred and it's severity; then there is always the referred pain component from the event.
..So i'll say yes.

In brief: Not usually
Your rotator cuff muscles and tendons reside deep to your clavicle (collar bone).
Muscles that attach to your clavicle include the trapezius, a portion of the pectoralis and deltoid muscles to name the more common ones.
