Ankle/foot burning sensation after slipped down

Hello. Today I was playing catch with a football at football practice. We were just running simple routes no pads or anything. As I was running my ankle slipped from under me and bent all the way inward. At first the pain was unbearable but now it is manageable I can walk on it but it hurts when I do that so I have been trying to avoid it. The side of my foot also has this achy burning sensation that goes and comes. I would really appreciate it if you could help me on this one.
