How well does a football helmet protect against impact?

Can't tell if you've accidentally placed this question in the wrong category, or if you want to use a motorcycle helmet for bike riding. But basically any helmet is better than no helmet, but a helmet built for the intended usage is better than just using any helmet. In this case a football helmet is designed to be able to take several hits with lesser energy than compared to a motorcycle helmet. An MC helmet is expected to protect against one massive hit and then to be discarded.

Can a motorcycle helmet be dropped and still protect?

Yes, but it is not recommended. Helmet manufacturers recommend helmet replacement after any impact to the shell. A motorcycle helmet is designed to absorb the impact and damage that would otherwise be reserved for your skull, but it is not designed to survive the impact. Any impact from a drop on solid ground (concrete or hardwood floor) can cause microfractures to the shell that are naked to the human eye. A good rule of thumb is this: If the impact would have raised a bump on your unprotected head, get a new helmet.
