Torn/sprained quad-is it normal for my knee to be bruised?

I tore/sprained my quad a few weeks ago and it's slowly been getting better although my knee has been getting the sharp pains. When I lay down everything is fine then Ill feel a pain in my knee that on a pain scale goes from about a 2-6 then just goes away and everything feels normal until I move. My wife noticed this morning that my knee is bruised and there's another spot of the front lower part of my calf that's bruised. Is it normal to have bruising after a quad injury?
Thanks
Stephen

Your quad inserts into your knee cap via your patellar tendon, so I could see excessive strains causing some bruising around your knee.

As for the calf, beats me.

You sure know a lot about this stuff(no sarcasm intended). What do you do for a living?
