In brief: PCL
Pcl is the strongest ligament of the knee.
An injury to the PCL requires a powerful force. A common cause of injury is a bent knee hitting a dashboard in a car accident or a football player falling on a knee that is bent. Any team sports that require running and jumping can cause PCL injuries, particularly soccer, football and basketball.
