Indianapolis (AP) -- Rodrigo Blankenship's three-year run with the Indianapolis Colts ended Tuesday when he was waived two days after slicing a 42-yard field goal to the right in overtime and sending two fourth-quarter kickoffs out of bounds.

The Colts wound up settling for a 20-20 tie at Houston — the franchise's first in 40 years.
