'Rolling your ankle'

In an RP I'm in, one of the characters just sprained her ankle after tripping over something, and I said that she 'rolled her ankle' (rather than 'sprained' or 'twisted', just because 'rolled' came to mind first when I imagined writing the scene). Anyway, I was wondering if that is an appropriate verb to use to describe that sort of event. I know that I picked it up somewhere, but I'm not sure if it's correct or archaic or an uncommon word choice. Has anyone else heard 'roll' used in this way before?
