Joe Biden breaks his leg while playing with a dog


WILMINGTON, Delaware – President-elect Joe Biden is likely to wear walking boots over the next few weeks as he recovers from breaking his right leg by playing with one of his dogs, his doctor said.

Biden suffered the injury on Saturday and visited an orthopedist in Newark, Delaware, on Sunday afternoon, his office said.

“The initial x-ray showed no obvious fracture,” but medical staff ordered a more detailed CT scan, his doctor, Kevin O’Connor, said. Subsequent examination found tiny fractures of two small bones in the middle of his right leg, O’Connor said.
