Let the sprain heal.. Dont stress it too soon. A full tear of an ACL is some pretty major surgery.

Keep your foot on the right peg in such a way that you have to deliberately move forward to be actually able to engage the rear brake.

Put the ball of your foot on the right peg as opposed to the arch near the heel... Also cover the front brake (just touching lever) with your pointer and middle finger.

This way the front brake is always going to be engaged alot quicker than the rear.. Once you have started slowing you and the bike will settle down a bit and you can decide how much rear brake to blend in.. Always initiate the panic stop with the front..
