ACL: Check with orthopedic surgeon: consider scar, graft impingement, tears.

Could be....: A few things. Probably has nothing to do with the graft. Could be your knee cap slipping, could be residual instability or weakness related to the rconstruction. Could be inflammation of the joint, could be meniscal symptoms. If it persists certainly see your surgeon.
