In brief: Smashed or crushed..
Muscle that has suffered significant trauma will loose it's typical form and consistency.
It will be soft, torn and in general have a "macerated" appearance.

In brief: Destroyed
The crush has disrupted the wrapper on the muscle like a blender and it is usually devascularized muscle and thus not reparable.
