Reid Falls, Dislocates Shoulder

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., missed the start of Senate proceedings on Wednesday after dislocating his shoulder earlier in the morning while jogging.

Reid fell during his regular morning run, spokesman Adam Jentleson said. The senator was treated at a hospital for a dislocated shoulder and a cut above his left eye.

Jentleson said that Reid is back at the Senate, "is totally fine" and "is in good spirits and is joking about it."
