I went to the doctor and he determined it was a sprained ankle without an MRI. He said it was a sprained ankle because of the areas of pain. If your bones do not hurt on contact then it is probable that your bones are not broken.

Another thing to note is there are different degrees of sprains, mine was a level 2, level 1 being the least damage. I couldn't imagine anything higher because level 2 was excrutiating pain.

Oh and I haven't been able to skate since and the pain is still here, albeit a lot lighter, so I'd prepare for a long time off skates...

But, that's just my experience so a visit to a doctor wouldn't hurt, they don't always have to run tests to see what's wrong.
What concerns me the most with his injury is how far it bent. The 90 degree angle bend really concerns me as my past expirences seeing and halfing ankle injuries. An ankle should not bend past a 45 degree angle normally. Also that pop is something that should be ingnored. If I were you I would be going to see that trainer As soon as possible.
