Hit fibula pretty hard, cant fully extend leg, pain. Is it a bruise, or a stress fracture, or a tendon issue?

Hello, Im playing rugby right now in a highschool club when we were doing a drill on a hard wood basketball court, and went down for a tackle and hit my upper fibula pretty hard. At the time i just kept playing because it did not hurt but when i got home it really started to hurt. Now in the morning a day later i cant fully extend my leg or bring it all the way up without a serious shooting pain in my very upper fibula. Is it a bruise , or a stress fracture , or a tendon issue?
