In brief: Possibly

Osteochondritis dikseccans.
A chip comes out of the back of the knee cap and forms a foreign body that can lock the joint. Also an old injury might. Needs x-ray.

In brief: Injury

Usually this is caused by either a meniscal tear or injury to the cartilage covering the bones of the knee joint.
