Robbie since I haven't had a reply from you I'll go ahead and answer and we can continue after this if you'd like. This could be a LCL injury or a meniscus tear or both. While you could apply ice and elevate the leg, it would be best to see a doctor and get an MRI of the knee to determine the exact injuries
