Find out exactly what the director wants to see in camera. If possibly push him towards having the actor sell it with a facial close up and sound effect. If they really want the gore, I'd lean towards a bulging split at the back of the actors leg with something to replicate the torn muscle (minced meat?) but you're going to struggle because the angle of the actor's healthy unbroken leg won't help you sell this at all. It will only work with a trick camera angle and a very quick cutaway.
In an entirely side note - it is quite hard to read your post, mostly due to some use of text speak. I am assuming for the most part that 'n' is short for 'and' or interchangeably 'an'?
Thank you so much! my index and middle finger are sprained on my right hand so it makes typing a bit hard.
