Front of knee swelling

From an impact just above the knee in football last Saturday I have had stiffness and swelling since and cannot bend the leg past half way or I feel a tear/rip to this area. I played on for an hour after the injury but only after the game it stiffend up. There is no pain in the knee just this stiffness and swelling above the patella.

I would be obliged to receive any advice on this.

Thank you.

    sounds like a muscle strain. try the RICE method. Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Take it easy and give it time to heal.
