WILMINGTON, Del. -- President-elect Joe Biden fractured his foot while playing with one of his dogs, but doctors found “no obvious fracture” while examining him Sunday. That's according to Biden's doctor.

The president-elect's office says he suffered the injury on Saturday and visited an orthopedist in Newark, Delaware, for an examination Sunday afternoon.

Biden's doctor, Kevin O’Connor, says Biden suffered a stress fractures in his right foot and would likely be wearing a walking boot for several weeks.

Biden was under examination more than two hours after arriving at the office Sunday afternoon.

Biden sustained the injury playing with Major, one of the Bidens’ two dogs.

The couple 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.
