In brief: No role.
When an ACL is injured, it is usually completely torn.
Vitamins and minerals do not play a role in ACL injuries.

In brief: No connection
I'm not sure the exact nature of your question, but I am unaware of any vitamin or mineral supplement that has been linked to acl injuries.
Likewise, I am unaware of any medicine or supplement that can prevent acl injuries. There have been good studies that learning good landing technique and specific exercises can decrease the chance of rupturing the acl.
