No, none of his bones were broken. 
John 19:36 "For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken." This passage refers back to Psalms 34:20 "He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken."
another fulfillment of prophecy!

All the way back in Exodus the Passover lamb was a type and representative of the Lord Jesus. Listen to the Lord's instruction to Moses in observance of the Passover concerning the Passover lamb. Exodus 12:46 "In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.

Again in Numbers 9:12 "They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it.

He truly is the lamb of God, slain from the foundation of the world, praise His name!
