Healthy muscles that act on the knee will overcompensate for the injury-induced limitation. Your lateral meniscus is probably sending caution signals to your brain, so it is activating hamstrings to help out.

This is true even if it is the hamstring on the leg opposite the injury... the strong leg is overworking to offset the limited side.

I recommend as much soft tissue work (professional massage and/or foam roll at home) to help recovery and keep things in balance. Focus on the ITB knee-to-hip and do some gentle supine figure 4 stretching (Drop the bent knee externally and internally).
Totally agree, great advice
