Is it possible that knee ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) repair itself?

In brief: Anything is possible

But the torn acl doesn't repair itself strongly, that it can function normally.
It usually is stretched out tissue, which is no good to the its normal job. There might be some scar tissue hitching the 2 ends of the acl together, but in no way, is that acl functional. I hope I have answered your question. Good luck and happy holidays.
