Did you bend/ kink the blade? Is that what you mean by out of round? You can just try bending it back into shape and may be able to use a vise to help straighten it out—just don’t clamp the teeth and ruin the set. It will likely vibrate and click as that part of the blade moves around various parts of the blade path and the kerf may be pretty ugly but should still useable when rougher cuts are ok.

Or when you lay it on a flat surface is it not flat? If that is the case, I think it is ruined.

Do your other blades track ok?
