It's possible: You want to try and figure out why it happened. For example, many times your shoe could of worn down on the outer portion.....if it was an accident like stepping in a pothole or something well accidents do happen. Try and strengthen your peroneal muscles.

All flannel aside.: Probably, unless you take preventive action. Have you ankle evaluated and begin a regimen of strengthening exercises. Great shoes, an ounce of awareness and good luck will help.
