The Washington Post reports:
President-elect Joe Biden sprained his right foot Saturday while playing with his dog, his transition team said Sunday after Biden was taken to an orthopedist “out of an abundance of caution.” Biden, 78, slipped while playing with his dog Major, one of his two German shepherds, his office said.
Late Sunday afternoon, Biden visited Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists in Newark, Del., about a half-hour from his home near Wilmington. There, initial X-rays showed “no obvious fracture,” according to a statement from his physician, Kevin O’Connor. Biden would be having an additional CT scan for more detailed imaging, he added.
