In ACL injury in player one should not delay, other wise it damage the articular cartilage of knee and muscle weakness.
If a good repair with Hams done with good fixation of grafts , normally , knee movements are permitted
after 4-5 days. Pain does not last more than 2-3 days of surgery. full weight bearing by the end of 8-10 weeks . You can very well play .
