Possible torn ACL helpppppp

Hello friends!

I was playing soccer 2 weeks ago when I hyperextended my right knee. I was running and planted the right foot when the knee hyperextended. I did not hear or feel a pop but did have a sharp pain and could not walk immediately after the injury. After about 30 minutes I was able to walk but with a limp. I had swelling in the back of the knee after a few minutes. The next day, I had severe pain with putting pressure on the right leg. I saw an orthopedic PA who was concerned that I had ruptured my ACL. 

After 2 weeks, I am now able to walk with no pain and almost no limp. I am still unable to completely extend or bend the right knee past 90 degrees. Is it possible to improve this quickly with a ruptured ACL? If it were you, would you get an MRI? I am a 23-year-old female and would like to stay active and play sports!
