I saw this question asked in the middle of a forum a while back. I'm here to say the answer is NO. While I'm certain that getting stronger may be preventative, I have direct experience with a very strong kid who trained Starting Strength and needs TJ surgery. Starting Strength was not to blame, and neither was overuse. Possible that his ligaments were not strong enough to accept the force his muscles were generating, but that's just speculation and I'm sure Rip will tell me I'm an idiot for speculating. Kid is 5'9", 18yo 165lbs and squats 350 for 5. Lack of leg strength is not the issue.
