I figured I would update everyone since I got my MRI results on Friday afternoon. So here's the damage; I have 2 fractures one in the femur and the other in the tibia. Basically when the knee dislocated it smashed into the femur on the way out and the tibia on the way back in. I also stretched out and thinned out the band of tissue that goes from the side of the leg to the patella.
The diagnosis; There are no pieces of bone that are loose from the fractures so no surgery is required to retrieve any bone pieces. Also the band of tissue that was stretched out should respond to physical therapy. If it does not respond to therapy then I may need surgery to reconstruct it, but that seems unlikely right now.
All in all I think I ended up lucking out and hopefully I will be back to running soon, and on the ice at the latest in the fall.
