He is a very active teenager practices 5 days a week. he plays football and his last game I think a cleat stepped on his knee. he has been limping since then and when he straightens it out is when he has the worst pain. he doesn't want me to take him to the doctors saying its probably just bruised. any suggestions?

Take him to the doctor. If he continues to practice on that knee he could do even more harm to it.

thanks.... I already made him an appt. he just doesn't know that yet! I just wanted another opinion, in case I was overreacting about it.

You should take him to the doctor. If he needs rest, physiotherapy or some other type of treatment continuing to just limp on it may make things worse.
