In American football and Canadian football a lateral pass or lateral (officially backward A lateral pass is distinguished from a forward pass, in which the ball is after taking the snap, to quickly transfer. The Canada football is not the NFL. That's what I asked.
Only one forward pass is allowed per play where there is no limit to the number of lateral passes per play (a lateral pass being one that travels parallel or backwards to the line of scrimmage). If the pass to the running back is a lateral pass, the running back is allowed to throw a forward pass to the receiver. If the pass to the running back is a forward pass, the running back is not allowed to throw a forward pass to the receiver.
A backward pass is one that does not go forward. Often, the receiver of a backward pass may then pass the ball forward. Once the ball has been passed forward, it may not be passed forward again during the same play.
There is no rule to forbidd this so yes it is allowed
Forward passes are not allowed if: a) the passer has traveled beyond the line of scrimmage, or b) a forward pass has already been thrown during the play, or c) the passer is intentionally grounding the ball to avoid a sack, or d) possession has changed during the play.
You are only allowed one forward pass per play, and all forward passes must originate behind the line of scrimmage (i.e., the line where the ball was placed prior to the snap). However, a backward pass (or "lateral" pass) is always legal from anywhere on the field. So a quarterback can receive the snap, make a backward pass to a back or an end in the backfield, who could then legally pass the ball forward.

Most passes in football, with the exception of sideways ones (called laterals), are thrown straight ahead, forward, albeit at an angle. Most, if not all,of the ones that catch the passes are wide receivers, though the defensive players can catch it too instead, which is called an interception.
Yes you can throw a football after a fumble as long as it is fumbled behind the line of scrimmage and it is the only forward pass of the play. Each offensive play is allowed only one forward pass. A ball advanced beyond the line of scrimmage may be passed or fumbled backward behind the line and then legally thrown forward as long as the feet of the passer are behind the line when he throws the ball and it is the first forward pass during that play. .
A lateral is a pass that is thrown sideways to or behind the player that throws the pass. This is the opposite of a 'forward pass' which is a pass thrown downfield, or in front of, the player that throws the pass. American football rules state that only one forward pass can be thrown per play. However, there is no limit as to the number of lateral passes that can be thrown per play.
First Foward Pass in FootballEddie Cochem, the Saint Louis University coach, was the first to use the forward pass in 1906. It wasn't legalized in the NFL until 1933. Here is more input:No one really knows when exactly the first forward pass was implemented in an actual game, but most historians do agree that in 1873 represenatives from Yale, Princeton, and Rutgers met to discuss formulating rules for this new game of football. The new rules consisted of reducing the number of men on the field from fifteen to eleven. Adding a fourth down before surrenduring the ball. Tackling below the waist was allowed. And lastly, the forward pass was legalized behind the line of scrimmage. The NFL/AFL merger did not happen until 1970. But by then the forward pass was an intricate part of the game.
There is no such thing; almost all passes never leave the ground and those that do are always forward. You are confused with American football, where a forward pass is ruled dead once it touches the ground.
