you're just the oddball!

yes, it's still possible to roll an ankle with good sturdy ankle support, but it's less likely to happen or be a significant or severe injury.

now my ankle roll was more severe but was while running bases in a baseball tournament about 12 years ago. I torn both the anterior and posterior ligaments in my ankle almost clean through. Was a hair away from surgery. Worst part is that I actually could hear both of them go "pop" as they tore. not a pleasant sound or feeling. I was on crutches and out of commission for a few months. to this day it's still limited and extremely loose though better than a few years ago.
