Hi.Your husband would have had a muscle strain, muscle pull, or even a muscle tear implies damage to a muscle or its attaching tendons & probably his knee (joint) during the sport.Knee joint have a number of ligaments.It is very important to rule out this condition.I suggest to consult an orthopedist and take his opinion.Hope this helps.Take care
