In brief: Depends

Your question is choppy and not sure exactly what you are asking.
With a heavy impact on the ball of the foot and your heel stretching downward can stress forefoot, midfoot and rearfoot including the achilles. If you experience swelling, pain and difficulyt weight bearing consult your physican. If you have minor discomfort then you can ice, elevate and do simple stretches until better no impact.

In brief: Tendon or ligaments

Tendons or ligaments are easily injured with a hyperflexion injury.
Non weight bearing, rest, ice, compression are the best initial treatments. Follow up with a foot and ankle specialist.
