Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) has been discharged from a Las Vegas hospital after suffering injuries in an exercise-related accident.

Reid's office said in a statement Friday that the outgoing majority leader was exercising at his home in suburban Las Vegas when a piece of exercise equipment broke, "causing him to fall and break a number of ribs and bones in his face."

The statement said that his doctors expect Reid will make a full recovery. Aides say he plans to return to Washington this weekend and be at the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday when the new congressional session begins.

Reid, 75, was treated at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas and kept overnight as a precaution, the statement said.

A White House spokesman said that President Obama phoned Reid on Friday from his vacation in Hawaii "to wish him a full and speedy recovery. The President was glad to hear the Leader is doing well, and will be back in Washington this weekend."

Several Republican senators, including Dean Heller (Nev.) and Jeff Flake (Ariz.), took to Twitter to express their best wishes for Reid.

The Nevada Democrat has served in the U.S. Senate since 1987 and has said that he plans to run for reelection in 2016. He recently moved to Henderson, Nev., a suburb of Las Vegas, from his hometown of Searchlight, Nev., in order to be closer to his family and his state's major population center as he prepares for the campaign.

This is not Reid's first exercise-related accident: In 2011, he slipped and fell during a morning run near his home at the Ritz-Carlton in downtown Washington and dislocated his shoulder. With his arm in a sling, he later showed off his black eye on Capitol Hill.
