Bone Bruise: Yes, please get your ankle X-rayed ASAP. It’s important that you rule out a fracture, and get the appropriate treatment if it is a bone bruise. You may need a soft cast for several days or weeks depending on the severity.

Yes: A bad idea. If you really really really had to because you are a professional and you were in the super bowl or something they make turf toe plates which prevent bending in the forefoot and then you could wrap the toe in coban or coflex, but in reality, it is not a good idea.
