NFL - Injury Timeout

A team is in the final drive of a game - under 1 minute left. All their timeouts are burned.

What penalty, if any, is there for a player injury resulting in an "injury timeout"?

If the injury occurs to the team trailing, there is a clock runoff of, I believe, 10 seconds. I'm not sure what, if any, penalty there is for the team leading.

Stopping the clock would be penalty enough, I would think.

If the offense is trailing and the clock was running, take 10 seconds off. The defense can't be penalized with a 10-second run-off.

Rule 4, Section 3

Article 6: Team time outs after two-minute warning of half.

(a) After the two-minute warning of either half, additional time outs by either team after the third legal one are not allowed unless it is for an injured player who must be immediately designated and removed. A fourth time out under these conditions is not penalized. Subsequent requests (fifth or more) under these same conditions are allowed, but are penalized five yards. On all excess time outs against the defense, the play clock is reset to 40 seconds.

Note: An attempt to call an excess time out to “freeze” a kicker prior to a field-goal attempt or a Try attempt is unsportsmanlike conduct.

(b) After the two-minute warning of either half while time is in, if the score is tied or the team in possession is behind in the score and the offensive team has exhausted its legal time outs, an additional time out may be requested and granted under (a) above. However, the ball shall not be put in play until the time on the game clock has been reduced by 10 seconds. The Referee, in a position between the center and the quarterback, will advise (by using the microphone) the game clock operator to take 10 seconds off the clock. During this time interval, the Umpire will be directly over the ball. After 10 seconds have been taken off the game clock, both officials will back away. After a momentary delay, the Referee will blow his whistle and give the wind-the-clock signal. This signal indicates to the game clock operator to restart the game clock and also to the offensive team that it may legally snap the ball.

Note: There can never be a 10-second run off against the defensive team.
