Much rather have it be a break towards the top of the fibula than ANYTHING like a serious legimentous or cartilagenous injury. The former is barely vascularized, and the latter is NOT vascular- which is why cartilage does not regenerate. As you all know, bone is highly vascular and has an amazing turnover rate. (yes, I study these things in depth in grad school everday ). From the look of it though (landed with his foot inverted and under him) it looks like it could be entire lateral collateral ligament complex of the right fibular-talar articulation. Sprain or (partial) tear- no idea. That's what the MRI will tell them.
