Symptoms:  Swollen knee

A:   Hi.

Read and understood your history of knee injury and finding broken piece of cartilage.
Your Orthopedic Surgeon will remove it by arthroscopy and can tell you the prognosis after the whole interior is visualized.
So the best idea is to wait till the surgery is done and then only you can know the effect on your life and the football career.

Hope this helps.
