The Torn ACL: A Comprehensive Analysis - Baltimore Beat Down
Due to the many variations of the ACL tear, it is quite uncertain to say how long the recovery period is. In some cases, a player will be back in action within a year (see Adrian Peterson) and in others the athlete will be out for a much longer period of time (again, see Derrick Rose). On average, however, a successful recovery from a torn ACL takes anywhere from four to six months with a successful rehabilitation and exercise program.
