In brief: PCL sprain

Pcl sprains can, depending on the severity of the sprain, recover in 6-8 weeks.
Occasionally surgery is required if the knee remains unstable after the sprain. This can be performed arthroscopically in the hands of a surgeon with experience with the injury.

In brief: Mild sprain?

Typically the healing for a mild to moderate sprain would be 6-8 weeks a grade 3 or complete tear might require surgical correction.
