In brief: May need 4-6 wks ...
Ankle sprains typically take longer to heal because of the tremendous pressure on them every step you take.
..Thus traumatizing the sprained areas over n over, thus slows down the healing process. You case seems mild...Just take it easy, gentle stretching, otc motrin/aleve if needed. If better each day = good sign. If getting worse, then consult doc... Good luck.
