6-2-4, 6-2-5 In PlayPic A, a team K player has legally batted a grounded scrimmage kick toward his own goal line. The ball then deflects off a team R player (PlayPic B) and is recovered by a prone team K player (PlayPic C). The ball is dead when team K recovers the loose ball. Because the bat caused the touching by team R, that touching is ignored. Team R take the ball at the spot it was batted, which is the spot of first touching.
6-2-5 First touching by the kicking team does not cause the ball to become dead. This is a legal advance. The right of R to take the ball at the spot of first touching by K is canceled if R touches the kick and thereafter commits a foul or if the penalty is accepted for any foul committed during the down.
