In brief: Yes

Any kind of twisting, cutting, pivoting, hyper extension, deceleration, etc type of mechanism can cause an acl injury.
It does not have to happen during sports.

In brief: Yes.

Any activity where your foot is planted and you twist or pivot, could tear the ACL.
We have 3 patients in our practice that tore their ACL's, just twisting to get out their airplane seat.
