You might have an ATFL ligament injury- needs a clinical examination to confirm. Partial ligament tears heal well with immobilsation in a cast. You have to confirm with your treating doctor, whether  walking can be allowed in your plaster.

Cast is put in your case just for making you rest out properly, otherwise for your professional lifestyle you are likely to have restless feet, always on the go. Take rest, chill out at home. Keep the leg elevated even while sitting or sleeping
