Sprained ankle 11 weeks ago....

So I'm a soccer player and 11 weeks ago at practice I shot the ball and came down landing full weight on my right ankle inverted. There was immediate swelling, extreme pain, and inability to walk. First I attempted to play through it through the week this became impossible and was revered to the doctor by my schools trainer. X rays were taken and nothing showed up the the doctor put me in a boot for three weeks because he said I had some " interesting bruiseing" by now my foot was purple three or four days out. I had a huge game at the end of that week and three weeks in a boot seemed ridiculous so I was referred to another doctor who said you shouldn't play but can if you really want to, as long as you go to PT. from then I went to PT for the next 7 weeks hardly any improvement and have recently stopped going and am playing agin. My ankle is still swollen, there's still a dull constant pain and with activity pain is elevated. At first there was general ankle pain, but since about week 7 the pain is localized, behind my ankle on the outside. It gets worse when pointing my foot down or out. Basically my question is, is this normal? Should I got back to the doctor? Any ideas on what this could be? I've been doing research on Peroneal tendon because that's where my pain is any chance it could be that?
