Can someone tell me what an MCL sprain means?

Im of course referring to David Booth, who recently suffered an MCL sprain in his knee. Reports are he will miss 4-6 weeks.

I was wondering if someone more knowledgeable than me on this subject could tell me what the injury entails. Is this something that nags the player long after he is back playing? Given the 4-6 weeks diagnosis, does that mean two months from now, or 2 1/2 at the most, Booth will be back at 100%?

Or is this one of those injuries where the player is never the same, or takes a year after they start playing again to get their speed back? ...is this what Marco Sturm had? (Please no). What about Kronwall and Franzen who werent the same for at least a year after suffering their knee injuries.

Or is that a torn MCL vs a sprained one, or a different knee injury altogether?

Thanks!
