Joe Biden suffered a hairline fracture in his ankle this weekend while playing with one of his pet dogs, his doctor said Sunday.

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

The incident occurred Saturday, and the 78-year-old Democrat was taken Sunday to see a doctor, in "an abundance of caution," his office told news outlets.
