Larger dogs put more weight on their legs so injuries can affect them worse then smaller dogs. We had a dog that tore something in his leg and had a bad limp for months and now has a slight limp over a year later. However, he has managed quite well. Avoiding running and taking walks is smart, though our dog still enjoys running when he is off the leash. Swimming or walking on softer surfaces may also help the leg more. Joint medication will help prevent anything getting worse.
Sometimes they stay the same, other times they get slowly worse, and still other times they get better. It all depends on the injury, the individual, and the care given.
I hope this helps and he starts getting better. Best of luck! : )
