In the sentence: Joe, injured by the ball, left the game. Would this be right? Participle-Injured, Modifier-Joe, and the Object of the participle-ball
The participle is "injured" yes, but there is no object or modifier for this participle.
"Joe" is the main subject of the entire sentence.
"ball" is the object of the preposition "by"
You have the participle right -- injured.
This participle doesn't have an object. The word "ball" is the object of the preposition, "by."
The phrase, "by the ball," modifies "injured."
Note: the participial phrase, "injured by the ball," modifies the subject, "Joe."
