Doctors/trainers can have a pretty good idea based on examination and physical testing which degree a sprain is, so we can be relatively confident that this is a first-degree sprain. Certainly, it could be shown to be a little worse on imaging, but they are unlikely to be far off. Also, the MCL generally has the shortest healing time of the four knee ligaments. We're not talking about an ACL here.
