This is a great article on the ACL Injury. This injury is a major cause of athletes having seasons, if not careers, but to a grinding halt.

Understanding the role of the ACL in the knee, it's effects on  the biomechanics and stabilization of the joint, helps with better providing return to play programs.

The ACL injury is not only affecting High Profile Professional athletes, but is a common injury of youth athletes, mostly seen in the female athlete.
