You can apply for unemployment but I do not know that you qualify under objective standards. ODJFS will make a decision, if you discuss the light duty return and your employer's refusal to allow you to return on light duty then you may get benefits. I am assuming that the injury is not a work-related injury which would raise other issues.

You may want to consult an employment lawyer near you on the issues. You can select one at www.oelasmart.net/directory
