Cavendish was hurt during a crash late in Saturday's opening stage of cycling's most prestigious event. He and Australia's Simon Gerrans were battling toward the finish line when the two went down.
"I was hoping that the shoulder would swell down, but it was not the case, unfortunately," said Cavendish. "That's cycling."
Cavendish has won a stage 25 times at the Tour de France.
