No, an eligible receiver past the line of scrimmage can never intentionally advance the ball in any way other than running with it. He can bat or throw it backwards, but if he goes forward with it it's either an illegal bat or a forward lateral.

What are the rules for lateral passes?

There are no restrictions to a lateral pass. Since a lateral is not considered a forward pass, it cannot be 'incomplete' ... if the ball hits the ground play continues as if the ball was fumbled. If the player that catches the lateral pass is behind the line of scrimmage, they may then attempt a forward pass. While there can be only one forward pass on a play, there may be an unlimited number of lateral passes on a play. Any player on the team may throw a lateral pass and any player on the team may catch a lateral pass.

If a player on defense catches a disc or hits it to the ground, then possession changes. The player may continue play going the opposite direction. If the disc hits the ground, any player may pick it up on his or her team to continue play. This is similar to an interception in American football.
