In brief: Not enough info
An ankle splint can be used technically for grade 1, 2, or even 3.
So hard to answer. The splint doesn't determine the extent of the injury. The amount of ligaments and extend fof stretch or tear in the ligament more readily grades the sprain.

In brief: Can't tell
Often times an ankle splint is used in a grade 1 or 2 injury.
More information would be needed to tell you how bad it is.
