When asking the patient about his injury, he remembers jumping up to head the ball and colliding with someone in the air to finally land on his right knee. The patient additionally mentions that the pain worsens when he tries to bend his knee and he hears it "click" occasionally.

His temperature is 36.7°C (97.9°F), pulse is 57/min, respirations are 19/min, blood pressure is 110/60 mmHg.
