In brief: Variable
A PCL partially heals in a slightly looser position.
Some patients have minimal difficulty with a PCL tear while others have instability sensations and weak push-off strength. Still others have rotational instability. Because of this, the PCL discussion needs to be personalized to your specific situation. This should really be addressed with a PCL sports medicine specialist.
