Couple things to realize.
"No contact" rarely means no contact. Even without pads, these guys are some of the more competitive people in the world, and it's hard to temper that during things of a competitive nature.
Any number of things can cause a neck injury. Head to head contact, being run into, or (as silly as it sounds) hitting or being hit awkwardly by a sled.
