Biden Fractures Foot Playing With His Dog


President-elect Joe Biden Jr. suffered a hairline fracture in his foot that will have him wearing a walking boot for several weeks, The New York Times reported Sunday.

The injury occurred when he slipped while playing with one of his dogs, Major, a German shepherd. An X-ray showed no fracture, but a "follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline [small] fractures of President-elect Biden's lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the midfoot," Dr. Kevin O'Connor, the director of executive medicine at GW Medical Faculty Associates, said in a statement.

Biden went to an orthopedist in Newark, Del., on Sunday and then to an imaging center.

President Trump, who has refused to concede to Biden, retweeted an NBC News video of Biden leaving the doctor's office, and added, "Get well soon!," the Times reported.
