In brief: Trauma

An injury to the ankle can result in a stress fracture.
When an ankle is injured it is at risk for further injuries.

In brief: Cause/effect

It's certainly possible the same injury that caused the sprain is also responsible for an ankle fracture.
A stress fracture, by definition, does not happen from one event, but rather from prolonged stress to the part. An examination and gait evaluation by a podiatrist may shed some light on the cause of your injuries.

In brief: See a podiatrist

Your ankle may be unstable do to the sprain and the extra force may cause a fracture.
