Can playing football with a bone contusion on the inner foot cause further damage?

A contusion is a: Bone bruise. Assuming that this is the case, then the main problem is that it is painful. Playing on it, if painful enough, can alter the gait of running and direction changes. As a result, secondary issues can arise.
