tricep partially torn

i was skating and the board slipped out from under me, i fell backwards on my elbows (had elbow pads) but my right hand had a plastic bottle which hit the floor first that took most of the brunt when i fell on my back. when it struck the floor, my tricep tensed up very fast as a shock absorber. later that day, my tricep is sore and has a small bulge in the middle. is my tricep partially torn and should i just let it heal on its own?
