It's not good: But I wouldn't worry as that won't solve Anything, ice it and wait for MRI results.

Hold your horses.: The diagnosis sounds reasonable, but without knowing the exact nature of the injury, I wouldn't place all my marbles in just those two possibilities. There are a few more soft tissue problems that could be involved, including nerve and ligaments. A little immobilization and the tincture of time might be all that is needed.
