bicep popped

Hi,

When doing a single arm curl using a 60 degree inclined bench (sort of 1 armed preacher), while on the downward movement, I heard a tear and saw my bicep move up my arm - the tear was at the elbow region. I was examined and the Dr. thought that it was not a tendon as I still had some good bicep strength. What was the tear and what is my best way forward for rehab? I cannot fully straighten the arm at the moment (5 days since injury), but can rotate forearm and contract the bicep, although gently.

Thanks
Giles
