I don't know anything about this kind of injury but I am inclined not to buy any injured horse, regardless if the injury appears mild or not. You want the best horse you can, and soundness is a HUGE part of it.
Also, injuries are often not limited to the "obvious" parts. He could have muscle problems in his hind end if he has been favouring it, or learnt to carry himself in an incorrect way. In my opinion, an injury will almost always be a "weak spot" in the horse. I wouldn't do it, but its up to you, it could work out find but be very wary.
