In brief: 8-9 months

The initial recovery for acl reconstruction has dramatically improved.
Most patients are now quite functional anywhere from 1-6 weeks after surgery, and can perform daily activities (and varies between surgeons and individual patients). However, the acl graft takes 8-9 months to fully mature, so pivoting activities still need to be restricted. Newer evidence is supporting the need to restrict.
