18 year old step son has a possible acl tear

by james

my stepson is in his senior year of football,he plays offense and defensive line. He has a possible ACL tear, we are awaiting his MRI. His x-rays are negative and he is wearing a brace and has had a cortizone shot and says his knee feels strong and pain free, if he wore a brace and had cortizone should he still play football?
