I have quad injury? or no

So about 2 months ago, I wanted to release tightness in my quads because i squat a lot. A hard foam roller was not enough so I used a 40lb kettle bell and started smashing against the side of my right quad, wasn't painful but i did it very hard.

Few days later there was some tenderness especially when squatting heavier. It got a bit better after a month but never fully recovered. Now it's 2 months and still that part seems uncomfortable, extremely sore, and tender.

33yrs | 24in SVJ | >45% BF | 227LB | 5'9 | 7'5 reach | 400lb max squat paused | 5'8 wingspan | 26in RVJ

Coming back from 2 years of inactivity!

Goal: Maintain 385-405lb squat while cutting down to 165 LB

That looks like the hamstring area or the IT band. maybe foam roll the IT band.

It's not the hamstring, it's the IT band and maybe side of quad.

I see. I understand as well why you did that, which I hope you realized was the wrong way to tackle a pain in the quads. I had this mentality too, I always thought when ever I got pain in my muscle stretch it, massage it vigorously like you did, whatever to make pain reduced even if it meant going through painful process e.g. my back problem so I stretched it like arching backwards until I wrecked it, couldn't squat or anything for few months, hips were stretched and were wrecked. So stretching or smashing it does not always work, but massage from expert, contrast bath, ice or heat treatment. Something I still need to learn about properly.
