Will My Torn Maniscus In My Knee Ever Heal

If the ACL has poor or no blood supply why does the knee swells up so rapidly when it is torn? If it has blood supply why doesn't a partial tear heal?
Acl tears bleed: Anterior cruciate ligaments tears generally cause a significant hemarthrosis( blood in joint) when acutely torn.This is from the tear itself and associated injuries..
