I skied and played tennis on it just fine, though it felt a little strange. However, one day I threw a football to my son. I fell over. I tried again. I fell over again. Something about planting the front leg and then twisting over it when throwing a football just could not be done with the torn ACL.
You mean throw a football with hand or kick it with the good leg?
