I’ve had an ACL reconstruction and in the time I was waiting between the injury and surgery I had no problems squatting (other than my normal poor ankle/hip range.) Also Mark Rippetoe doesn’t have an ACL and obviously it hasn’t affected him. It’ll probably depend on how strong his surrounding muscles are already as he’ll be relying on his quads/hamstrings/glutes more than usual to stabilise his knee.

Not a professional diagnosis by any means, just my own experience.
