my first guess would have been a a luxating patella, a knee cap that slips in and out of place which can cause pain sometime severe when out of place and everything is normal when in place but you symptom would not be typical,. Any soft tissue injury strains and sprains are going to need a hands on diagnoses from a vet,. In the mean time you want to keep him off of it as much as possible crate rest would be best. Keep in mind soft tissue injuries are often worse than broken bones. They take longer to heal,, do not heal as strong and more apt long term to lead to arthritis and continuing pain. You need to highly consider stair or a ramp to the bed so he does not need to jump on or off,
