The purpose was to quantify the effect of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries on performance in a lower extremity reaching test and a jump-landing test in collegiate athletes. Eight Division I athletes performed these two tests prior to their ACL injuries. They also performed the reaching test 3 and 6 months after their ACL reconstruction surgeries and the jump-landing test 6 months after their surgeries. Participants demonstrated decreased reaching distances for the injured leg and increased reaching distance asymmetries at 3-month and 6-month post-surgery compared pre-injury (pp
