Knee issues, unsure

Hi everyone.
I was involved in a motorcycle crash at a race course 2 weeks back and injured my knee, i went to hospital and they assumed it was an ACL tear, After xray and some test it was certain it was not, the dr that was there told me to stay off it for 6 weeks, i went and seen my regular gp after 1 week and 4 days and he said to see a physio as he was unsure.
I am currently walking on the knee with no pain what so ever nor was there any when the crash occured, the only problem is im having limited range, i cant fully extend my leg as it feels as though its locked or going to dislocate and i cannot contract as it feels like its tearing something, but i can put full weight on it whilst it is slightly bent and even jump on it.
From my own based research ive come to see its cartlidge damage within the bone joints, though im no dr.
Anyone else got any suggestions ?, im just rather curious and kinda worried that its something really serious and i cannot see a physio till after christmas
Thankyou in advance .
