In brief: When you can jump

That will need a period of rest and rehabilitation.
If you can't jump your body is telling you it's not ready. Make sure you are following up with your neighborhood podiatrist or orthopedist for a full exam.

In brief: Why?

It is difficult to assess your injury from your brief description, but the most sensible answer would be "when it doesn't hurt to jump.
" pain is our body telling us what not to do. A grade 3 sprain means you have completely torn ligaments. They need rest and support to heal properly. Allow yourself time to heal, then go back to whatever activities make you happy.
