Default possible torn meniscus?

two weekends ago i was riding with a buddy and it was pretty icy out, some kid bailed in front of me so i threw a tight carve to avoid him and ended up slipping out and smashing my right knee cap into a nice ice patch. sharp pain shot through my knee and i called it a day. walking and daily activities dont cause any pain, shit, i can even run on it and theres no pain or inflammation. i do however get pain when i kneel on it or when i bend it all the way. all signs point to a torn meniscus but the pain isnt too bad so im thinking it might just be bruised or something. anyone had this happen to them? i ordered a brace today so ill be riding again soon, just curious to see if theres anyone out there with similar issues
