Foot run over. Still pains. Have I had an internal bruise?

Hello, Roughly 3 months ago I had my foot run over by a small 4-door BMW, closer to the top region, just below my ankle. I have tried to utilize my foot very little in that time, especially difficult because I am an avid soccer player. Last night I tried running on it for the first time since the accident and have had mild discomfort in the last day. I have had both an x-ray and an MRI on this foot, both of which came up negative, but I still very strongly believe that I have some variety of bone bruise concerning the bone/bones in the vicinity of the medial cuneiform. If you could perhaps conjecture on some variety of time table, it would be much appreciated, and, if possible, could some sort of recommendation be given on how to proceed from here on out (vs just continuing rest or if it s worth trying to play again soon)?

Thanks for writing to us.
Since the foot was injured three months ago, any bone injury is not likely to persist for that long. It is most likely a soft tissue injury. You can resume playing after wearing an elastic ankle brace. Do start with physiotherapy sessions before doing any exercise.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
