I found this quarter in a bank roll. There is some extra metal between the neck and wing. Is it a DDR or die chip?

Looks like. These remind me of an old glass window that breaks. Some times a flatter piece of glass will break out of the window. They look real thin like a contact. But I feel the metal off the die breaks off this way sometimes. More of a horizontal chip than a vertical die chip.

Looks like a pre-Die Chip depression to me.

I would just call it a die chip, but I'm interested to hear @e&v's definition.

I agree with die crack/pre-die break depression.

A pre-die break/chip depression is when a piece of the die has partially broken off and is beginning to fall of the die, leaving a shallow, depressed area on the coin. Very similar to retained interior die breaks but the die cracks have not fully formed. These can be pretty common on modern coins, especially nickels. Eventually, a large die break or chip will form in that spot.

2008-P 5 WDDR-001 has a very strong pre-die break depression as a die marker: https://www2.briansvarietycoins.com...gs/view/1536

Ok well I can see that I'm learning something today, which is always nice. I guess I'm not 100% sure where the chip depression transitions to the die chip. Is it that the chip depression is actually a strike-through of the hunk of die that has chipped off? Or are you saying that this hunk of metal on the die is loose, but hasn't quite been separated from the die?

Thank you for your patience with explaining the subtleties of this and sorry to @gf20878, for slightly hijacking this thread.
