Lateral Meniscus Tear

So recently I tore my lateral meniscus and have been working my legs around my injury. I cant do full squats or anything that requires me to fully flex my knee. However; since I have been unable to work my legs as usual it seems that the quadricep muscle on the injured leg cant flex as hard or the muscle tone is as noticeable as the uninjured leg. Is this normal? and if it is why does it happen?

Thanks for all the help guys

its almost as if my rectus femoris is gone is what im basically trying to say
