Colts K Rodrigo Blankenship injured his hip in the 1st quarter of Monday night's game vs. the Ravens, HC Frank Reich said. Blankenship ended up missing an XP, getting a FG blocked and missing a 47-yard FG that would have won the game as time expired. We'll keep an eye on Blankenship this week, but you should plan on using someone else in Week 6 fantasy lineups.
