Is there any scope for training with limited/reduced ukemi? I personally don't mind working in a three with someone and allowing them to skip taking ukemi to allow them to train whilst recovering. Depends on how things work where you train though I guess as to whether this is feasible.
Good idea. Training in three would make it less unfair for my training partners that I would not take ukemi. I'll ask if that would be ok when I get back.

I'd rest it completely for a short while then slowly work back up, don't rush too much to get back into full training lest you get yourself injured further and taken out of action for longer...
I'm hoping to get back on the mat in a week or two but indeed I don't want to injure myself further...
