John McCain treated for injury to Achilles tendon

Sen. John McCain received medical treatment for a minor tear to his right Achilles tendon suffered over the weekend, his office said in a statement Monday.

The 81-year-old Arizona Republican has been undergoing treatment for brain cancer ever since his diagnosis became public in July. In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes," McCain said his brain cancer is "very, very serious."

"Senator McCain was treated at Walter Reed Medical Center over the weekend for a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon, as well as for other normal and non-life-threatening side effects of cancer therapy," the statement read. "Senator McCain has returned to work in the Senate and will be wearing a walking boot until his injured tendon is fully healed."
