Sprain or tear???

I injured my ankle playing football (kicking the ground)one week ago. Although it seemed a very light injury (not very swollen, no big problems and pain walking), after one week of ice and rest it is still swollen, stiff and giving pain to many movements(apart walking). Should I be worried that, despite seemed a light sprain, there can be a ligament damage? How long should it take to heal? And when to restart running? Playing football?
