My son fractured his metartasal

My son is 12 and fractured his metarsal bone on the side of his left foot. We have not seen the ortho yet, it is Fri and we could not get an appt. until Mon. He is suppose to have baseball try-outs this weekend, and we are wondering how long it will take for this to heal. the Dr. in the ER didnt seem to think it was a major fracture.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
