My Limping Dog

My german shepherd has been limping for couple of days. We check his pad it looked okay. We did notice that when we touch top of right paw he pulled it back. He didnt cry, it doesnt look swollen. He still walks on it, in fact he even run on it. He seems normal except for the limp. He still eats okay, he seems the same as he always is. Could it be broken? We have it taped up pretty good with plenty of padding on top and bottom of paw to eliviate the pain. Could it just be a bruise also. He hasnt fallen, nothing fell on his paw. One night we just noticed him limping. we also checked for anything that might be caught underneath between his pads. Any suggestions?
