How long does it take to heal a torn ligament in my ankle?

The swelling is going down alot and I have a small fibula fracture and a torn ligament. I'm wondering how long until the ligament heals. It's only been about 10 days but I can't get any exercise when I can't put weight on my ankle.

For a complete or near complete tear? 16 weeks, if all goes well.

I know, doctors never tell you things like "how long"
