Maybe: If the glass went deep enough to damage one of the muscle or nerves in your foot, its possible. If not, more than likely you are compensating to avoid putting pressure on where the glass was in your foot. Changing the way you walk can cause an overuse of other muscles leading to cramping and aching. I would recommend seeing your local podiatrist to make sure there still isn't glass in your foot.

Yes, tendonitis: The peroneus brevis inserts into the base of the 5th metatarsal. It can become inflamed(tendonitis) with exercise. The job of the tendon is to help left the foot off the ground.

Balls of your feet: You use the calves more and get a better workout using the balls of your feet. If you try to jump rope flat footed, it can put too much of a pounding on the heel. This can lead to plantar fascitis, calcaneal stress fracture, or bruising of the calcaneus(heel). The key to jumping rope is to wear good supportive shoes that can absorb the pounding from jumping rope.
