General Surgeon 's  Response
These type of unnoticed injuries do occur during sports and should be reviewed by a orthopedician. Though the chances of a hairline fracture is less but should be ruled out and the treatment with plastercast and rest will be necessary if something is found out. You should be concerned though there is no issue of emergency. I wish you good luck and pray god she recovers soon.
Hope you find my suggestion useful.
Thanking you
