In brief: Between2 and6 weeks

For a mild grade 1 sprain it may take 2-3 weeks to heal for a grade 2 sprain , it will likely take about 4-6 weeks to heal for a grade 3 sprain, you will likely be out for 6-8 weeks.
Obviously these are estimates and each case varies with the patient and the activity that they will be returning to.
