In brief: Talus fracture
If it is an acute fracture.
I would recommend you don't.

In brief: All depends on
the type of fracture that is present.
Off weight bearing though would minimize chance of causing more damage.

In brief: Generally, no
It depends on the type of talus fracture, but most talus fractures require non weight bearing for 8-12 weeks while they heal.
Many talus fractures also require surgery, so make sure you see an orthopaedic surgeon to make sure your fracture is being treated appropriately!
