(NEWSMAX)Joe Biden sprained his right foot while playing with his dog Major, according to an orthopedist.
“Initial X-rays are reassuring that there is no obvious fracture and he will be getting an additional CT for more detailed imaging,” Kevin O’Connor, a doctor with Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists in Newark, Del., said in a statement.
Biden on Saturday “slipped while playing with his dog Major, and twisted his ankle,” his campaign team said in an email.
Arrangements to see a specialist were made for Biden to “receive an x-ray and then additional CT Sunday afternoon … to avoid disrupting scheduled appointments on Monday.”
Biden was playing with one of the Bidens’ two dogs. They adopted Major in 2018, and acquired their first dog, Champ, after the 2008 election. The Bidens have said they’ll be bringing their dogs to the White House and also plan to get a cat.
