In brief: How slight?

A very small injury ca heal quickly with prompt range of motion exercises instituted immediately with some lifting restrictions.
When more of the tendon is injured, concerns for rupture arise nd will prompt more restricted limitations.

In brief: If only slightly cut

It doesn't matter. If repaired, 3 weeks for flexor and 4 for extensor to start moving under their own power.
