3 doctors agree
In brief: Torn Mcl
It depends what grade the tear is.
Grade 1&2, you may be able to walk but with grade 3 it will be painful and rest is recommended for at least 72 hours.But if it is painful to walk then stay off your leg, use cruches and follow with yor orthopedic doctor.So it depends on the severity of tear, as all tears are not the same.

Most of the mcl tears alone are treated by brace, you could walk on it with the brace.
