Thx Dr G I think that has to be it from reading a bit online. Thats exactly where the tenderness is.
I'm confident it is a "grade I" tear because (a) there was/is no swelling at all; (b) i can bend my knee and even squat pain free; (c) i didnt even realize it was injured at first when it must have happened so the trauma couldnt have been that severe.
But nonetheless I'm going to try to get in to see someone today to get confirmation. Injuries ugh! Xande Ribeiro (one of the best in the world) is teaching BJJ classes this week at my school..... totally sucks.
