U.S. President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Tuesday was seen wearing a walking boot on his right foot after fracturing several bones at the weekend while playing with his dog, Major.

Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris arrived at The Queen theater in downtown Wilmington at about 12:34 p.m. to introduce their economic team led by Janet Yellen, the treasury secretary nominee.

It is the same venue where the president-elect introduced several of his national security nominees and appointees last week.

The president-elect walked in wearing a blue suit, a dark mask and spotting a black walking boot on his right foot. He appeared to move without much difficulty.

Asked how his foot felt, he said “Good,” and thanked journalists “for asking.”

Biden then lifted his right foot toward the journalists to show off the boot.

His doctor said on Sunday that Biden sustained a sprain of his right foot while playing with his dog.

“Initial X-rays are reassuring that there is no obvious fracture and he will be getting an additional CT for more detailed imaging,” Dr. Kevin O’Connor, Director, Executive Medicine, GW Medical Faculty Associates, said in a statement.

After Biden received his additional CT on Sunday evening, he released another statement, saying “follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot.”

“Initial x-rays did not show any obvious fracture, but his clinical exam warranted more detailed imaging. Follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot. 

“It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,” Dr. O’Connor added.
