In brief: 6 weeks.

If your certain that your ACL is intact, just sprained grade 1, then it should take about 6 weeks, with the help of physical therapy.

In brief: Depends

Depends on which knee ligament you have injured and also how severe your injury is.
After a sprain or partial tear to the mcl, the ligament has completely healed in most people after three months. If there is a complete tear, recovery may take a little longer but most people are back to their usual activities after 6-9 months.
