Brief Answer:
Could be quadriceps sprain.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I am Dr Gopal Goel , Orthopedic Surgeon.
By the description , it appears that you have sprained quadriceps tendon( Thigh muscle).
I suggest take pain killers, Ice pack locally at least 3-4 times a day.
If you don't feel relieved by 50% in 5 days then go for an X ray.
Thanx for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.
