In brief: Too many
There are normally 26 bones in the foot not counting the sesamoids or assessory bones.
Any of these can be fractured in a variety of ways. There are a variety of fracture types: stress, avulsion, spiral, comminuted, transverse, intaarticular, etc. All have potentially different treatments and outcomes. Dr l.
