This is a thrown ball, not a batted ball, and you’ve already used the key word to the answer. Let’s hold that thought right there.

What if the thrown (and dropped) ball hit the BR in the leg? Arm? Torso? How about off the head (helmeted, of course)? It’s “play on”, right? So why is the foot any different?

Oh, right, because a kick, using the foot, can be intentional. However, in this case, you’ve already stated that it wasn’t intentional. So, if it wasn’t intentional... then play on.
