"Again, if you take the opponent off the mat, you are responsible for his safe return."

Doesn't the rule say that a slam is defined as lifting and returning the wrestler to the mat with unnecessary force?

To me, this implies that a mat return done with "normal" force (for example a routine lift and sweep of the legs from behind with hands locked around waist) could result in an injury and still be legal (defensive wrestler lands on his elbow and is injured).

I'm not referring to a particular incident, just reading the rule and thinking of an example.
