Did you see an orthopedic doctor for your knee? They would have told you whether the tear is bad enough where you will need surgery or if it is okay to just rest and let it heal on your own. I have torn both of my acl's and have gotten surgeries. I can still play soccer so your doctor should be able to advise you in your situation.
