Basically...: All four parts of the quadriceps muscle ultimately insert into the tibial tuberosity of the tibia. This is via the patella, where the quadriceps tendon becomes the patellar ligament, which then attaches to the tibia.

Rubber bands: Yes! Has a lot to do with consistent, daily stretching, in an attempt to regain some range of motion and tendon/ ligament healing.
Varies: Many variables factor into your healing. The ability to rest, rehab, use of other treatments (bracing, injections, medications), age, diet, genetics, etc. Tendons are slower to heal than muscles because of less blood flow. What one defines as "healing" is important as well. Pain free with typical daily activities versus returning to a vigorous sport such as tennis or basketball. Expect 1-4 months
