Foot and ankle bones

Illustration showing foot and ankle bones

A fall or blow to your ankle can break one or more of the three bones in your ankle joint — the fibula, the tibia and the talus — while rolling your ankle can cause a break in the knobby bumps at the end of the tibia and fibula. The most common foot fractures are in the toes or the long bones just behind the toes (metatarsals).
