I played football 2 or 3 weeks ago and tweaked my ring finger. Now it bothers me when I type. Not sure if its just a spraign or something worse?

In brief: Suggest exam/ xray

If your finger is still giving you problems after 3 weeks i would suggest an exam and possible xray you may have a small fracture or possible tendon or ligamentous injury.

In brief: Finger injury

No one can tell you what this is without an exam and perhaps an x-ray.
Go be seen. The longer you wait the worse the problem can get.

In brief: Mild sprain

Should be just a mild sprain unless there is significant swelling and ecchymosis.
