splint coverage

Had a friend call and ask me about his son's healing wrist fracture...don't have my books here at work, and I want to be sure I steered him in the right direction. His son has a healing wrist fracture, and has been cleared to play and given a note from his doctor...as long as his splint is covered by padding, he's good to go, right? Many thanks!!!

a. A guard, cast or brace made of a hard and unyielding substance, such as, but not limited to, leather, plaster, plastic or metal shall not be worn on the elbow, hand, finger/thumb, wrist or forearm; even though covered with soft padding.
