Best Answer

By one of four ways:

1. His/her flag is pulled

2. He/she runs out of bounds

3. Depending on the league you play in but i believe that if he/she drops the ball (fumbles) the play is dead and the ball carrier is down.

4. He/she knee hits the ground they are deemed "stopped" (also depending on the league)
