How long does it take for a lateral collateral ligament to heal?
. two to four weeks

Recovery times differ depending on the severity of the injury: A minor, or grade 1, LCL tear can take from a few days to a week and a half to heal sufficiently for you to return to normal activities, including sports. A grade 2 tear can take from two to four weeks.

What do we know so far about Naughton's knee? I'm hearing lateral ligament. Have we ruled out ACL? I'm really anxious about it as I'm sure a lot of us are.
Good serious post Scag.
He seemed in pain which suggests a more lateral injury..fingers crossed,without him we are a bottom four side,our club sucks and I coach senior football in the west.

I think our medicos should be experts by now on knees. They deal with 2 a year on average so I hope they're correct in their decision.

They do the test right away and it’s usually right. Hopefully the scan doesn’t produce any surprises.

If it’s lateral he might have a delayed start to the preseason.

He depends on speed, leap and lateral movement a bit so would hate to see him get an ACL.
