In brief: See Doctor ASAP

Make sure you rule out a blood clot first.
You may need to see a spine/pain specialist for further evals and treatment for this foot turning purple and cold, it could be a case of complex regional pain syndrome. I would also rule out any sort of infection that needs to be treated as well. Either of these things needs to be treated ASAP, otherwise significant complications can arise.

In brief: See that you even

have foot drop.
Sounds like a pretty severe trauma. Have you been evaluated by neurologist or a neurosurgeon?
