Procedure for restarts after an injury are as follows:
1) Drop ball where the ball was when play was stopped. 1 or more players may participate.
2) If the ball is in the penalty box when play is stopped, perform the dropped ball procedure outside the box parallel to where the ball was at the stoppage, unless the ball was below the 6 yard line. In that case, move the ball outside the box even with the 6 yard line.
3) If the GK has possession of ball when there is a stoppage for an injury, the correct restart is an indirect free kick for that keepers team, where the keeper possessed the ball. We do not drop the ball for the keeper to pick up nor give the keeper the ball to punt or throw.
