No play: Better to give rest for your knee for a week and then use some splinter for knee for next 2 weeks.

Rest, ice m, NSAIDs: Bruises can involve the superficial soft tissues right below the skin and be very minor or very deep and involve the muscle or bone. You can play soccer if your pain is very minor with running and kicking and you have normal function. If not, then rest until pain nearly resolves and function normalizes.

RICE: Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) is typically recommended initially for most soft tissue injuries. If it does not get better, don't hesitate to be seen.
