Welcome to the forums!
I'm sorry your budgie hurt his foot and hasn't been feeling well.
Did you manage to take a closer look at the foot and to see if there is additional damage on the soles of the foot?
Even with one injured foot, your budgie would still be able to perch with the other foot and if he is spending so much time on the bottom of the cage, and you notice a change on his behaviour (decrease in energy levels, appetite), it would really be best to have your budgie seen by an avian vet specialist.
The avian vet will be able to take a proper look at the swollen foot as well as to check his overall health and to prescribe the most adequate treatment plan for your budgie.
Since your budgie is spending more time on the cage's bottom, you can cushion the cage with a soft cloth or old t-shirt. You can also pad a couple of perches with vet wrap.
I hope your budgie's foot will heal up well and he will feel better soon, best of luck!
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
