  • Rodrigo Blankenship: Cut after missing critical kick

    The Colts waived Blankenship on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. In addition to drawing penalties after sending two kickoffs out of bounds in Week 1, Blankenship misfired on a 42-yard field-goal attempt in overtime against the Texans that cost the Colts a win and forced the team to settle for a 20-20 tie. The poor showing will now cost him his job, but the 25-year-old was already on thin ice entering the season. The Colts' decision to move on from Blankenship comes after he followed up a strong 2020 rookie season by converting only 11 of 14 field-goal tries (78.6 percent) and seven of eight extra-point attempts (87.5 percent) in 2021 while being limited to five games due to a hip injury. He was healthy for training camp but still faced competition for the Colts' kicking role, narrowly beating out Jake Verity for the gig. According to Pelissero, the Colts auditioned a number of kickers in a group workout Tuesday and will likely sign one or two to the practice squad before deciding on a replacement ahead of Sunday's game in Jacksonville.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Beats out Verity for starting job

    Blankenship has won the Colts' kicking battle with the team releasing Jake Verity on Thursday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports. Blankenship entered as the favorite and reportedly outkicked Verity at training camp, even showing improved ability on tries from 50-plus yards. While he has one of the weaker legs among NFL starting placekickers, Blankenship could be useful in fantasy leagues this year, playing for a dome team that many project to win a weak AFC South.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Operating as starter at OTAs

    Colts head coach Frank Reich said last week that Blankenship (hip) is the favorite to win the starting kicker job over Jake Verity, Kevin Hickey of USA Today reports. Blankenship operated as the Colts' placekicker to start 2021, but he played just five games before being placed on IR with a hip injury, which ultimately ended his season. Michael Badgley replaced Blankenship last year, but he remains a free agent as Indianapolis signed Verity to provide competition to Blankenship during the offseason. Now healthy, Blankenship is poised to reclaim his starting gig. Across 21 career games, he's converted 43 of 51 field-goal attempts, with six of his eight misses coming from 40-plus yards.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: In offseason battle

    Blankenship (hip) is expected to compete with Jake Verity for the Colts' kicking job during OTAs and training camp, Kevin Hickey of USA Today reports. Blankenship has held Indianapolis' starting kicker duties over the past two seasons when healthy, but he played just five games in 2021 before being placed on injured reserve with a hip injury in November. He ultimately converted 11 of 14 field-goals attempts and missed one extra-point attempt in 2021. Blankenship was relatively consistent in his rookie season with the Colts, and if healthy, he'll be the favorite to retain the kicking job.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Remains on IR indefinitely

    Colts head coach Frank Reich said Wednesday that Blankenship (hip) will remain on injured reserve for the foreseeable future with Michael Badgley having secured the team's kicking job, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports. After Blankenship landed on IR on Oct. 16 with the right hip injury, Badgley has stepped in to handle kicking duties for each of the last five games. Badgley has gone a perfect 7-for-7 on field-goal attempts and 19-for-19 on extra-point attempts, a performance that will allow him to retain the job even with Blankenship seemingly trending toward a return to full health. Since the Colts haven't designated Blankenship for a return from IR, he can't practice with the team, but he'll presumably work out on his own and continue to rebuild strength in his hip in the event he's needed at some point later in the season.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Placed on IR

    Blankenship (hip) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Blankenship had already been ruled out for Sunday's Week 6 matchup due to a hip injury that he sustained last week, but he'll be forced to miss at least three games. Michael Badgley was elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Texans.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Still absent Thursday

    Blankenship (hip) was unavailable for Thursday's practice. The kicker was a non-participant at practice for the second consecutive day after he suffered a hip injury Monday night against the Ravens. The Colts added kicker Michael Badgley to their practice squad on Wednesday in case Blankenship is unable to go Sunday versus the Texans.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: No practice Wednesday

    Blankenship (hip) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice. Blankenship's absence from practice comes as little surprise, after head coach Frank Reich said the kicker underwent an MRI on Tuesday after dealing with the hip injury in Monday's 31-25 overtime loss to the Ravens. The Colts tried out some kickers Wednesday and signed Michael Badgley to the practice squad, per Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis. Badgley will presumably be elevated to the 53-man roster by Saturday if the Colts aren't confident Blankenship will be ready to kick Sunday against the Texans.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Battling hip injury

    Blankenship played through a hip injury suffered during the first quarter of Monday night's game against Baltimore, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports. Blankenship obviously wasn't right after suffering the injury, missing one of two extra points and two of four field goal attempts. One of his field goal misses would have won his team the game as time expired. It's currently unclear if the injury will force Blankenship to miss time, but the Colts will likely audition other placekickers heading into Week 6 against the Texans.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Converts all three FG attempts

    Blankenship converted all three field-goal attempts from 48, 46 and 35 yards and made his only extra-point attempt in Sunday's loss to the Rams. Blankenship has converted all four field-goal attempts this season, and his two 45-plus yard conversions bode well for repeating his success from that distance last season. The 2020 UDFA went 31-for-34 from inside 50 yards last year.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Wins kicking battle

    Blankenship has won the Colts' kicking job with the team releasing Eddy Pineiro on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Undrafted last year, Blankenship won the job with a strong training camp and converted 32 of 37 field-goal attempts (86.5 percent) in the regular season. However, he had just three attempts from 50-plus yards, missing two, and then missed a field goal in a playoff loss to Buffalo. Blankenship will keep his spot for Week 1, but the month-long job battle with Pineiro this summer suggests Colts brass isn't entirely sold on him.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Makes 47-yard FG

    Blankenship converted his only field goal attempt from 47 yards in Saturday's preseason win at Minnesota. Both Blankenship and Eddy Pineiro have been nearly perfect in training camp and the preseason. Blankenship will likely retain this starting job from last season unless he stumbles. He had a solid rookie campaign, missing only five kicks (including PATs) inside of 50 yards. However, he had a key 33-yard misfire late in the third quarter against Buffalo during the playoffs.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Faces competition for kicker job

    Indianapolis will have an open competition at kicker between Blankenship and Eddy Pineiro during OTAs and training camp, Jim Ayello of The Indianapolis Star reports. "[Blankenship] had a good season for us last year, so that's obviously taken into consideration. He'll have to earn it again this year...it is open competition," head coach Frank Reich said. Blankenship had a solid rookie campaign, missing only five kicks (including PATs) inside of 50 yards. However, he had a key 33-yard misfire late in the third quarter against Buffalo during the playoffs. Blankenship doesn't have great range (1-for-3 on kicks of 50-plus yards), so the Colts could decide to go with a stronger leg. Still, Blankenship has to be considered a heavy favorite to retain the job over Pineiro.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Drills 53-yarder

    Blankenship connected on both field-goal attempts and all three extra-point tries in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Texans. Blankenship nailed a 35-yarder on the first drive of the second quarter, and he drilled a 53-yarder on the next drive, marking a career long with his first made field goal from beyond 50 yards. The rookie is in the race for the most points in the league, as his 125 ties him for second and has him just eight points shy of Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Minimal usage in blowout loss

    Blankenship didn't attempt a field goal but made both extra-point attempts in Sunday's 45-26 loss to the Titans. The Colts scored touchdowns on each of their first two drives, and Blankenship followed up each score with an extra point. By the time the Colts found the end zone again, they were down by 18 and in need of two-point conversions. It was an unlucky game script for Blankenship's fantasy managers. He's still a must-start option with the next three games in dome settings.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Drills both kicks Sunday

    Blankenship made a 43-yard field goal and his lone extra-point in Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Ravens. Blankenship led the league in points through the first six games, but he took a sharp turn following the Week 7 bye, making just one field goal and four extra points -- he missed two attempts last week -- over the past two contests. The Colts' offense continues to be mediocre, but it should provide more opportunities for Blankenship in Week 10, as the Titans have allowed an average of 25.1 points per game this year.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Perfect on five kicks

    Blankenship made all five kicks -- three field goals and two extra points -- in Sunday's 32-23 loss to the Browns. Blankenship has only missed one field goal from less than 40 yards this season, and he connected on all three from that range Sunday. Colts faithful should be excited to have some stability at the position after legend Adam Vinatieri's disappointing 2019 season, as Blankenship leads the league with 56 points through five games. Even with the Colts' offense being underwhelming, Blankenship is producing and should be universally rostered and started Week 6 against the Bengals.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Registers 13 points

    Blankenship hit all four field goals and his lone extra-point attempt in Sunday's 19-11 win over the Bears. The undrafted rookie has been a solid contributor for the Colts, as he's made all nine extra points this season and 12 of 14 field goals (86 percent). Blankenship's work from distance has been solid, too, hitting four of five kicks from beyond 40 yards. It's tough being tied to the Colts' mediocre offense, but a Week 5 matchup against the Browns should yield fantasy dividends, as the Browns have allowed the eighth-most total yards (402) in the league.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Converts six kicks

    Blankenship made two of three field-goal attempts and all four extra-point attempts during Sunday's 36-7 win over the Jets. Blankenship converted field goals from 42 and 41 yards Sunday, but he hit the right upright from 41 yards on his miss. It was still a productive day for the 23-year-old, and he's 8-for-10 on field-goal attempts and 8-for-8 on extra-point attempts through three games. A matchup with the Bears in Week 4 represents the toughest defensive test for the Colts in the young season.

  • Colts' Rodrigo Blankenship: Misses short FG in debut

    Blankenship made two of three field goal attempts, missing from 30 yards, in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville. He converted both extra-point attempts. It's concerning that Blankenship missed a short field goal in a close game considering the undrafted rookie likely doesn't have a strong hold on the job. He likely cannot afford many more missteps early in the season.
