Thumbs down knee injury

Last Friday, I was running cross country and when going around a bend, I heard a pop in my knee. I was in instant pain, and couldn't complete the workout.I went to the doctor, but I did not get an MRI so he couldn't tell exactly what was wrong. He guessed it was a strained ligament but couldn't tell. He told me to get an MRI if it still hurt in a week. It's been a week of me limping around, I can barely put any pressure on it. I am in tons of pain. I've been taking Motrin and wrapping it, but nothing is helping. Is it possible I tore something? Or would I not have been able to be limping around with a torn ligament? Should I be on crutches? The inner part of my knee that is part that is hurt. I would say on a scale of 1-10 of pain(one least amount-ten most amount), I am at a 7 or 7.5.
