Kerry grounded after bike accident, but question is how long

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry plans to fly to Boston Monday after staying overnight in a Swiss hospital to receive treatment for a broken leg incurred in a bicycle crash. It was unclear how long he will be grounded once he returns to the U.S.

Kerry fractured his right femur Sunday when he struck a curb with his bicycle and fell on a regular Tour de France route about 40 kilometers (25 miles) southeast of Geneva.

He was in stable condition and was receiving treatment at Geneva's main medical center. He was to receive further care at Massachusetts General Hospital once he returns home. There was no word on whether he would need an operation.
