Aqeeqah animal getting injured before slaughtering

Q: I purchased a goat for the Aqiqa of my daughter. A few hours before slaughter, that goat jumped from a wall and on landing, the goat injured because of foot sprain. There was not any external wound or bleeding. Also There was neither fracture nor any swelling till the time of slaughter. Was its slaughter Halal for the Aqiqa?

A: It is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
