Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher said Tuesday that running back Karlos Williams will play Thursday against Louisville, according to Warchant.com of Rivals.

The Tallahassee Police Department announced Monday that Williams was a suspect in an alleged domestic battery case that it was investigating. Later in the day, Florida State announced Williams' status on the team was under review until more information was received.

On Tuesday, the attorney of the alleged victim, Nathan Prince, said his client has requested that police drop their investigation into Williams. According to Prince, the alleged victim has not filed a criminal complaint, did not notify police or the university of an alleged incident and will not cooperate with investigators.

The alleged victim and Williams used to be a couple and lived together, Prince said, and had a child together with another on the way.

Williams leads the Seminoles with 378 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns this season. The senior was also named in a drug deal robbery incident that occurred in June. According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Williams is listed as an associate on the TPD report and has not been charged.

The No. 2 Seminoles (7-0) play Louisville (6-2) in Kentucky Thursday night.
