Joe Biden’s doctor said Sunday that the president-elect sustained a sprain of his right leg after spraining his ankle while playing with his dog Major.
“Kevin O’Connor said in a statement,” Early X-rays are assuring that there is no apparent fracture and that he will get additional CT for more detailed imaging. ”
Hours after the statement, Biden’s team confirmed his injury, stating that the 78-year-old twisted his ankle while playing with his dog Major and would be examined by an orthopedist “cautiously walking out.”

A spokesperson for Biden said that an X-ray and then additional whistles Sunday afternoon … were arranged “to avoid interrupting appointments scheduled for Monday” for the presidential election.
Despite several requests by reporters covering the president-elect, Biden was not given the opportunity to enter the doctor’s office. Leaving the doctor’s office as the head of an imaging center for his CT scan, Biden was visually lame, though he left without a crutch or other assistance.
Biden’s examination was still underway more than two hours after arriving at the office on Sunday afternoon.
