An aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says the lawmaker dislocated his right shoulder and has a bump over his left eye after he fell on Wednesday.

Spokesman Jon Summers said Reid went outside to exercise on a rainy day, put his hand on a wet surface and slipped. The Nevada Democrat was treated at George Washington Hospital and released.

Summers said the 71-year-old Reid planned to go to work as usual on Wednesday. Reid was absent at the start of Senate proceedings, with Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Democrat, taking his place.
