LI will explian: Simple broken toe usually it takes 6-8 weeks to heel .Uncomplicated medial collateral ligament also take that much. The joint capsule take the same time.

Approx 6-8 weeks.: In healthy people, most bones take 6-8 weeks to heal. However, the body continues the healing process for a full year after injury or surgery. So for example if you had an MRI it will still show activity even after the 6-8 weeks.
