Either the referees will call a dead ball or the defender tackles him on the field. Sometimes it's pretty rough when a guy gets tackled.

When is the ball or player considered down in NFL football?

The runner is considered down when either a: His forward progress stops or b: any part of his body other than his foot or hand touches the ground AND he is touched by a player of an opposing team. There is no "down by contact" in college football. That's only in the pros. When a college player goes down he cannot get up and continue running, period. He does not have to be touched by an opposing player to be considered down.
