ACL injury doesn't cause changes in CBC, there is no infection or systemic inflammation, nor is there bleeding which might cause anemia.
CBC is usually performed prior to surgery if the ACL ruptured and requires surgical treatment. This is a part of pre-anesthetic checkup, not a tool for diagnosing ACL rupture.
