ankle injury

my daughter injured her right ankle playing soccer a week ago. It swelled and was painful to walk. She said she heard a pop when she rolled it playing soccer. A week later, she can walk on it and there is slight swelling, but not much, but she complains that her tendons feel "tight" back of foot and still pain especially if she walks and rolls ankle. I thought was a sprain, but not sure now. I have her wearing a brace. Any ideas?
