Tricep tear or rupture?

Patient: Is there a way to test whether I either tore my tricep or ripped if off the tendon. I seem to not have limited range of motion and it doesnt seem to hurt that much. Also i dont feel crepitis when im rubbing around in there. But the bruise looks very similar to pictures online of ruptures.

 

 

Symptoms: Popped when I went to slam a ping pong ball. Not much swelling overall just lots of bruising on the medial and lateral side of my elbow.
