hi welcome to heaalthcare magic, sports injuries are very common and nose jaws are very common due to its pronounced projections, well with the details to have stated it could displaced fractured bony segment, swelling will come down in 4-5 days time but it is best you see a ENT or oral maxillofacial surgeon who can examine you and let you know and if nasal fracture then can be treated better, sooner the better, and check whether it is painful on touching any part around the nasal bridge and do you feel any movement in that region. all the best and wishing you a early recovery.
