so I injured my knee playing rugby two weeks ago. At the time of the injury I heard a pop. I could get up and put my weight on it and walk. I tried to continue to play but it felt a little wonky. There was barely any pain or swelling. Today, two weeks later my only real symptom is a can't straighten it all the way. I can fully bend it with a little bit of pain but not much, it's more of a soreness/stiffness. I practiced with a brace on yesterday and it wasn't terrible but I can't run at more than half speed because it requires full extension of my leg. 4 years ago I had a soccer injury where I partially tore my acl (still needed surgery) and badly sprained my mcl at the same time. I heard the pop, couldn't walk, and had a lot of swelling and some bruising at the back of the knee. Because of my lack of swelling and bruising and ability to walk and still participate a bit in practice I don't think it is my acl I have injured but I could be wrong. My thought after some research is I may have injured my meniscus. Just looking for some opinions as I do not have a family doctor and after I got my X-ray and it was fine the emergency doctor was useless and couldn't tell me anything. So if you have any advice or think you have an idea of what it migh be let me know
