Blackburn Rovers midfielder Robbie Savage admits he thought he had broken his leg again on Saturday.
Savage came off in the first half following a shuddering challenge from Manchester City skipper Richard Dunne in Rovers' victory.
"I thought I could carry on but I could not," said the Welshman. "I had an X-ray, which came back clear, which is good news.
"It is just bad bruising right on the break. Hopefully in a few days it will be fine."
