Also don't let his cast make you feel sorry for him, keep him in his crate while you are gone again until he can be counted on 100% of the time. then slowly give him access to the house again.
My husband and I are into pet rescue, so we have had many dog issues come through our house. If you ever have any other questions regarding your adorable pup, feel free to PM me and I'll do my best to help.
Best of luck

Every once in a while (like every 3-6months) my dog will have an 'accident' (poop) on the stairs (always on the stairs, don't know why). I've noticed it happens if we miss a day walking him (usually due to illness or bad weather) - it's like he's saying 'screw you guys!' LOL Little bugger...
No idea if that relates in any way, but it just reminded me of what my dog would probably do if he were feeling off schedule.

If he is peeing in his crate, its possible the crate is too big for him. Generally the crate should have enough room for him to be comfortable but not enough that he can go pee in the corner and then be just fine over in his end. A smaller crate generally prevents them from peeing because they don't want to sit in it.
Maybe it could be the change in his routine such as not going for his usual walks. Dogs are like kids, they love routine and get thrown off when you change it up.
Also, he is still a puppy. There is a chance he is doing it just because he is forgetting to go when he's outside.
Finally, could he be marking his territory. We have a puppy and are having a real issue with him peeing on our bed. We know he is doing it to try to mark the bed as his territory (we have 2 dogs). It is very frustrating but we are doing our best to train him out of it.
