Probably a muscle or tendon injury. An injury to the Achilles tendon or calf muscles can give similar symptoms. Tightness may indicate edema or hematoma in deep soft tissues (ie: muscles). Sometimes a knee injury with a joint effusion can be the cause. Please see your Doctor or a Sports Medicine or Orthopedic Specialist for further evaluation.
