In brief: Either fracture or s

If you are limping and the ankle is swollen and bruised, you need an x ray to determine if their is a fracture or it is a soft tissue injury, like a sprain.
Treatrment for these entities is different so diagnosis is very important

In brief: Ankle injury

You should have this evaluated since your symptoms can indicate a severe sprain bur could be a chip fracture.
Your primary care physician can order an x-ray to help evaluate it.
