Ankle ligament Torn

My right foot twisted while playing badminton. It has got swelling too. I consulted a doctor immediately for any bone fracture and had an X-ray. There was no bone fracture but Ligament torn(Grade II).I am taking complete rest since 10 days. When should I start walking? Should I go for plaster to heal the torn Ligament?
