Brief Answer:
Likelihood of fibrosis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The mentioned MRI findings indicate the likelihood of a small fibrosis (or healing with fibrous tissue deposition) which could have resulted from the healing of a small tear (could be due to overstretching) on the given muscle. Hard to comment without being able to look at the plates. Clinical correlation is very important.
