partial tear of lower bicep tendon

Will a partial tear at the tendon-to-bicep connection repair itself? Eight years ago I suffered a complete tear while swinging a baseball bat. It was surgically re-attached and I recovered completly. A few days ago, I was again swinging a baseball bat and it seems as if I suffered a partial tear of the same bicep. Visualy the bicep seems to be in the correct location, however, slight pain is felt on certain movements and the inner area of the arm above the elbow is severely bruised. No major pain is felt and no noticiable strenght lost.
