The Washington Redskins left New Orleans not only mentally battered but physically bruised following the blowout loss.

Adrian Peterson was among several Redskins players to leave hurt.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday that the running back suffered a strained shoulder, and will get a second opinion, but it is not expected to keep him from playing, per a source informed of the injury.

Peterson got banged up several times. First, the 33-year-old exited on the first series after his leg buckled on a hit during a swing pass. After limping to the sideline All Day would later return.

After the game, Peterson said he suffered a dislocated shoulder near the end of the half.

"I just popped it back in and braced it up at halftime," said Peterson, via the Washington Times. "I got back in there."

Peterson added he hurt his shoulder after getting hit while running a flat route.

The running back played just 13 snaps in the blowout loss, just three of which came after halftime -- he didn't touch the ball on any of those snaps -- per Next Gen Stats.

Peterson carried four times for six yards and caught two passes for 36 yards. It's the fourth time in his career that AD had more receiving yards than rushing yards (previous time was Week 2, 2018), according to NFL Research.
