In brief: Possibly
For a more severe sprain, weightbearing may take several weeks.
I would recommend evaluation by a specialist to make sure you only have a sprain.

In brief: Yes
Aby sprain that is more than mild will take more time to heal.
You should use a support until there is no pain. It can take as long as 6-8 weeks to heal.
