Brees tossed a 62-yard touchdown pass to Tre'Quan Smith to put his New Orleans Saints up 26-6 against the Washington Redskins in the second quarter.

Peterson seemed confident postgame that he would be okay, and an MRI confirmed that he had suffered no major damage, the person with knowledge of the injury said.

Peterson twice said after Monday's contest that he had dislocated his shoulder at the end of a catch-and-run, telling reporters he had popped it back into place.

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

The Saints defense lost star cornerback Marshon Lattimore to a possible concussion in the first half but forced two Washington turnovers, an interception by Alex Smith that reserve defensive back Justin Hardee almost returned for a touchdown and a Smith fumble that linebacker A.J. Klein recovered.

"Just so grateful for the opportunity to play this game and to have played it so long and to have the teammates that I have, and the New Orleans Saints organization, and this great city and this great fan base".

Peterson added he hurt his shoulder getting hit while running a flat route. He said he knew something was "seriously wrong". "I got back in there".

The Saints (4-1) now have won four consecutive games and get a week of rest before they head to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. Ingram also had two catches for 20 yards in his first game of 2018, following a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance enhancing drug policy.
