In brief: No
You can tear just the PCL without tearing other ligaments like the acl, mcl, or lcl.
Pcl tears occur from either a blow to the front of the shin near the knee with the knee in flexion or from hyperextension of the knee. Rehab involves quadricpes strengthening. Surgery is usually not necessary.
