Ankle injury

Patient

Q: About 12-14 weeks ago I tore all the ligaments and pulled a chip of bone out of one of the bones in my foot. I had a cast on for 1 week and a moon boot on for 6 because where the bone came out was wear the ankle doesn't move. I have been able to stand on it for a long period of time and have been able to get back into light activity again. Last night I played my first soccer game back and i hadn't done much running the whole game but in the second half I was running and my ankle couldn't handle the weight and pressure and wouldn't allow me to put any weight on it for the rest of the night and my foot/ankle had been hurting a lot. Today it was bearing the weight a bit better but was still really painful in certain areas. Do you think I have damaged it again?
