In brief: Sounds

Sounds like he tore a muscle and had some bleeding under the skin.
Usually treated with ice for 24 hours to minimize swelling, ace wrap for support, rest and antiinflamatories like ibuprofen. At this the time, he seems to be doing the right thing. It he doesn't improve in the next week he might see his physician. Best wishes.
