In brief: A Bruise likely.

Not knowing where on the ankle she was injured makes it difficult to assess potential problems.
As long as it is bruised and there is no pain to speak of, you can try putting warm moist compresses on the area to dissipate the bruise. If there is limited ankle motion or pain, then an evaluation is in order.
