Hello,

It is possible to have the ACL tear but with minimal symptoms as you may have a strong muscles around knee and that helps in stabilization even if the ACL is torn. So yes it may be torn with minimal symptoms.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
