Depending on severity, the Grade I or II non Lisfranc foot sprain (nonsurgically treated) will typically require anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks of recovery before returning to play.
I'm glad you said that because I was doubting my sanity when I heard it reported that it was a mid-foot sprain but NOT a Lisfranc. I was trying to think of ways I could sprain the middle of my foot without doing something to the tarsus/metatarsal junction thingamajig. Cause that's kinda the definition of a Lisfranc, right?
