Brief Answer:
Bone injury likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms are suggestive of a bone injury. Mild joint dislocation is also possible. It is best to get an X-ray of the foot done to find out the exact cause of these symptoms.
Keeping the foot elevated on two pillows while resting and taking mild pain killers will help in the meanwhile. Avoid all the painful movements.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
