I think it's not a complete tear and should heal itself if you avoid further activities and wear a long knee brace during standing and walking. Do consult for 2nd opinions
Next Steps
get your vitamin d and B12 levels checked
Health Tips
get injectable supplement

If there is instability then definitely should go for surgery as the report shows an acl tear. Delaying operation will lead to further deterioration of joint. After surgery the patient can walk full weight bearing. And return to sport activities in around 4-6 months

Looks like a ACL tear...but not all ACL tears require surgery... Can improve with exercises and medications as well Patient age, his occupation and clinical judgement plays a very important role

Hello . As per the MRI what I can see he has femoral side tear of Acl. I didn't find any meniscus injury. I would also be interested in knowing your husbands age, occupation and weight. Would also be helpful to know the report since the images are not very clear
Next Steps
He would require an Acl reconstruction surgery if it's a complete tear but before that would be better to consult and know certain details like how he injured and was there knee swelling after injury.
Health Tips
Avoid sports and strenuous activities.
