A number of docs have confirmed that grafts are fully anchored after ten days, so it's not going to cause you to lose grafts. Personally, I'd err on the side of caution, but there's a very slim chance you'd do any damage. Grafts are durable, and once they've taken, a bump from a soccer ball isn't going to dislodge them or damage them. If your head isn't still tender, go right ahead.
