A: No. Just because you can walk after an injury, this does not mean that you can’t have a fracture/broken bone. There are 26 bones in each foot, and you actually CAN have a broken bone/fracture and still be able to walk. Walking on a broken bone can lead to problems, including worsening of the fracture and/or non-healing. Foot fractures need some type of immobilization (and sometimes even surgery if poorly aligned) in order to heal properly.
