What does a displacement of the meniscus root mean? Is a ACL sprain considered a tear? Unable to straighten knee could it be patella femoral pain?

In brief: Knee issues

Root of the meniscus is the part which attaches to the bone, if it is displaced then it is probably torn,.
Yes Acl sprain indicates a partial tear of some of the millions of fibers can that make up the entire Acl ligament. Inability to straighten ones knee completely has many reasons. If you have a recent onset of that u need to be evaluated.
