leg presses rehab post knee procedure

my 17 yr old daughter had arthroscopic knee procedure (removal of scarred tissue, no meniscus)2/24. her PT says she must be able to leg press 80% of her body weight @ 15 reps on her rehab leg before beginning soccer training (running, cutting etc). she can't even do that on her good leg. seems too high.
