I just dont get how anyone can assume he is going to be alright before an MRI
Well, obviously you can never tell for sure without the MRI, but if there is little to no swelling then there is no tear. I would assume that's what his opinion is based on. It's very good news that his MRI is today (if this is true), because that would mean there isn't much swelling.
