WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden fractured his foot Sunday while playing with his dog, according to his transition team.

"It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,” said Dr. Kevin O’Connor the Director of Executive Medicine at GW Medical Faculty Associates.

The injury was initially diagnosed as a sprain, but a CT scan showed hairline fractures in his mid-foot.

Biden is still expected to attend his scheduled events Monday.
