Have you been running or jumping on uneven surfaces?
Anterior talofibular ligament sprain/tear
The outer ankle ligament complex prevents the foot from rolling in (inversion). The inversion type sprain is the most common injury (90% of ankle cases). The injury is usually sustained while running or jumping on an uneven surface. Tenderness is usually present over the surrounding soft tissue structures.
