In brief: Knee injury

Your knee injury may or may not be serious.
For now, use ice packs, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory medications, keep it elevated, and try to rest it. You should see an orthopedist specializing in trauma or knee problems to check it out, particularly if it doesn't respond quickly to the treatment outlined. Hope this helps!
