    Hello there, to answer that question correctly, one would need more information about the mechanism of injury ie what happened and how did it happen, did you hear any clicks/pops, did you feel anything tearing, do you have joint instability etc. Sprains (where the individual sustains ligament injury/damage are rated grade 1 to 3. Three being most severe. Roughly, you can expect grade 1’s to take min 3 weeks, while grade 3’s can require surgery to re-attach a ruptured ligament. In the initial stages, RICE should be followed, with assessment made by a professional. You may need rehab in order to return to activity. Hope this helps.
