You might have to take a day off to give rest to an injury. Such injuries might not be major but still require attention and care. In such a case, a short sick day email due to minor injury can be composed and submitted at work place.

Subject: Request for sick leave
Most respectfully, I would like to inform you that I met with an accident yesterday on my way back home from the office. I have hurt my right knee. I am not able to walk properly and might need to see a doctor if it does not get better by today evening.
I request you to kindly grant me a day’s leave for the same. If I need an extension of the leave period, I will inform you.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
