I think "steps" would included the bottom surface of the foot.
Okay, that could mean a receiver running. I thought we were talking about the Lamb catch ruled no good or the Jags TD from earlier, which were both going to the ground (2022 version) type catches. For purposes of the rules, a toe tap counts as a foot down and each toe touching down also means "with both feet" by the rules.
So are you asking if a receiver jumps to catch a ball, comes down on one foot and then hops on the same foot before the other foot lands out of bounds if that would be a catch? If so, by my reading of the rules, it wouldn't be. I think people confuse the commonly heard "2 feet down" with the rules that say, "with both feet." The latter is more specific.
