Ankle Ligament Injury

I have Grade II damage to the Ankle Lateral Ligaments. I have been on Crutches for the last 10 days, with tubular grip as support.
Any advice on when I should start to put weight on the ankle again and get rid of crutches and is it possible to do damage if I get rid of crutches too early.
I don’t have pain when on crutches- how ver I haven’t tested weight Bearing.

    This is a serious injury and will take on average 3 to 6 weeks to heal completely. Ankle support and PT is recommended after your immobilization period.
