In brief: Possibly

This will depend on a variety of factors.
Normally, it is important to immobilize the bone to allow for good healing. This can take the form of cast, splint, cast boot(depends on location). I will usually use a cast or cast boot for foot fractures for more security/protection. Discuss with your doctor. A good evaluation of the situation will determine the best treatment. Dr l.
