    Sure Dimcl...

    The injure happened is a minor one with which I was unable to walk,doctor suggested be take rest.If I mention this as "emergency situation" they may consider as major,so I taught of not giving such opinion!!

    If it were my situation, I would simply say "I had an accident that injured my leg and the doctor told me to stay home and rest". It wasn't an emergency, it was just an unavoidable accident that caused you to miss training. You could just say "I injured my leg and couldn't walk".
