I agree with the other posts above me- careful with your diet to keep things in check. Also, don't overwork an injury that should be treated/rested because if you don't let if heal it WON'T.
Since I don't know how you hurt your leg, I can't give you the best advice, but my favorite for any injury? SWIM!! Find the local high school and see when they have an open pool (mornings are usually open to the public for a tiny fee, and are filled with people working out, not little kids.) Just an idea!

1,000 calories is a tall order.
Remember that the majority of your calorie burn actually comes from daily living; while you're healing, you need to follow your doctor's orders (and get clearance for exercise) and focus on diet to create your calorie deficit, not exercise.
Have you seen a doctor due to the injury and were you cleared to exercise? It may be a good idea to allow yourself time to heal properly. And remember, healthy living is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise. You may not be able to exercise as you wish temporarily while you heal but you can make sure you are making wise food choices.
