The recovery time after an ACL reconstruction is 6-8 months, and full strengh after 12-15.
He allready tore his ACL once in college, the main thing is regaining strengh and movement, that helps in the stabilsation.
The recovery is painfull and long. Especially the first few weeks, it feels as if the leg is just a piece of wood attached to your body. Raising it requiers thinking of raising it, tightening the muscules it isn´t automatic as if you were healthy.
That´s my personal experience.
