sprained ankle

i sprained my ankle 3 weeks ago on the tennis court. it was categorized as a level 3 (i did hear several popping noises at time of injury). it is still swollen, however, with an air brace i am highly mobile without pain and have been running/playing tennis again..(although slightly uncomfortable)

my question: can i resume activities now, if it is still swollen, and expect it to heal properly? am i returning to activities too soon?

Pro-Tec Athletics' J-Lat Knee Support helps guide the patella back into proper alignment with gentle pressure from the lateral to medial direction. Compression surrounding the patella will help keep it in the patella-femoral groove.
