INDIANAPOLIS, IN (KTRK) -- In Sunday's Colts' win over Cincinnati, Indy kicker Adam Vinatieri nailed a 53-yard field goal.

The long kick was one yard further than his previous team record of 52 yards. Vinatieri, who is the oldest player in the NFL at 42, didn't get any accolades from the league. Instead, he got drug tested.

Colts punter Pat McAfee tweeted a photo of the drug test letter that was sent to Vinatieri. McAfee tweeted, 'When u're closer to 60 than 20 & bang a 53 yarder 3/4 of the way up the upright..This type of thing is expected #GOAT'
