When it's in regards to a catch.. in order for it to be a completion.. the WR has to first have both feet be inbounds and has to have full control of the ball throughout the full motion of the catch. so in Ballards case.. he caught the ball had full control over it and made contact inbounds with the one leg but did not get both knees or feet inbounds therefore it was ruled an incompletion.
