Biden sprained his ankle according to Fox News.
Dr. Kevin O’Connor said, “Initial x-rays are reassuring that there is no obvious fracture and he will be getting an additional CT for more detailed imaging.”
“A 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.”

More from Fox News:
A Biden spokesperson said that arrangements were made for the president-elect to “receive an x-ray and then additional CT Sunday afternoon … to avoid disrupting scheduled appointments on Monday.”
Reporters covering the president-elect were not afforded the opportunity to see Biden enter the doctor’s office, despite multiple requests. Leaving the doctor’s office to head an imaging center for his CT scan, Biden was visibly limping, though he walked without a crutch or other aid.
