Update—Achilles Tendon

Turns out that I did not damage my Achilles’ tendon. I damaged a peroneal tendon.

Primary care and chiropractor have both checked it out in the past week. Each one said I could see a podiatrist, but it probably wasn’t necessary. I’m in a boot for 2 to 4 weeks, then restricted activity for another 4 to 6 weeks. If it’s not improving after a couple of weeks, I’m calling the podiatrist.

I was able to borrow a boot from a teammate, so I saved myself some money.

I'm not sure if this is better or worse than what you thought, but I'm glad you've gotten checked out and found a boot. At least you're on your way in the right direction.
