Democrat Joe Biden slipped while playing with his dog, Major, and twisted his ankle, according to his campaign and pool reporters.
His campaign said Sunday that “out of an abundance of caution, he will be examined this afternoon by an orthopedist.”
Other details about the incident were not clear.
The pool reports said they were in Wilmington, Delaware, near Biden’s home.
According to a pool reporter, their “van was maneuvered so that reporters and photographers could not see [Biden] as he left the motorcade and entered the building” and Biden’s “team will not allow journalists off the van. Pool is holding in the van outside the office”
