ruptured bursa sac

About 2 days ago I fell on my knee in a basketball game. The next day it was fine but the next day in practice I felt like it was going to give out. When I'm not on it,it feels kind of numb and stiff. My coach said she was pretty sure it was a ruptured bursa sac but it's not swollen, there's just a bruise right under the knee cap. I was wondering if you had any idea what it could be.
