can you get sport related injuries in your butt from not wearing jockstrap?

No: The purpose of a jock strap is to provide appropriate support and protection for the testicles. Jock straps do not protect the buttocks or anus.

Wrong side.: The jockstrap is for the front, not the back.

Yes: Most acl tears occur through noncontact activity. Any sport where you are on your feet and use you knees may predispose you to an acl tear.
