RFAs and Injuires

The situation with Parise has left me thinking about something, and I'm wondering if someone well versed in the CBA can help me out here.

Let's say your team has an RFA. He gets hurt and misses the rest of the season plus more.
I'm not sure about this one, but teams require that a player has to pass a physical to make a valid contract, correct?
If that's the case, and you have an injured RFA:

1. Can other teams put in offer sheets?
2. If no one can sign him as a result of the injury-physical thing, does he remain team property?

As long as the team qualifies him, it's the same as a non-injured RFA. (See Curtis Foster who lost half a season after breaking leg, was qualified and re-signed by Wild. Took the better part of that season to get back on the ice.)

But if a player is injury prone, a team may choose not to qualify him, making the player an UFA.

Nothing prevents a team from making an Offer Sheet to or signing an SPC with a player that is injured.

If the player is still unfit to play at the end of training camp, he may be placed on either the Injured Reserve List (if he was on IR at the end of the previous season) or on the Injured Non-Roster List (if he was not). In either case he may be put on LTIR for cap releif until he is fit to play.
