FSU senior RB Karlos Williams will miss the remainder of the game against Florida with a concussion.

Williams is the school's starting running back, but Dalvin Cook is easily their top ball carrier. Still, Williams has been an important piece to the puzzle. Florida State will play Georgia Tech in the ACC Championship next.

FSU senior RB Karlos Williams is "no longer a likely Day 2 pick," according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

Kiper listed Williams as the draft's biggest RB faller. "Todd Gurley's stock took an unfortunate hit with his torn ACL, but Williams' has dropped while healthy," Kiper wrote. "The senior has a powerful frame and good speed but lacks elite balance, explosiveness and the ability to break tackles (2.8 ypc between the tackles, fourth fewest among Power 5 RBs). He'll get drafted, but he's no longer a likely Day 2 pick and needs to run well during the evaluation process." Williams has only 571 rushing yards this year.

FSU senior RB Karlos Williams rushed for 10 yards on four carries in Saturday's win over Miami.

Four for 10 is not a good stat-line, but Williams was part of one of the more odd bounces in this current Florida State winning streak. In the third quarter, Jameis Winston dropped back to pass at the 11 and fired a pass to Williams. A Miami defender got a hand up and deflected the pass into the air. Williams never had to break stride as he caught the ball and strolled into the end zone. These sorts of things happen when you're undefeated, unless you're Mississippi State. Then they don't.

The Tallahassee Police have dropped the investigation for an alleged domestic assault by FSU senior RB Karlos Williams.

"We believe he didn’t do anything wrong in the first place," said Tim Jansen, an attorney representing Williams. During the investigation, Williams continued to play for Florida State. Yesterday, he thanked his team for its support, saying that he "just [had to] keep moving forward." It should be easier for the senior to move forward now that this investigation is no longer hanging over his head.

FSU senior RB Karlos Williams said that he wanted to focus on "things he could control," rather than his assault investigation.

The senior is being investigated by the Tallahassee Police Department for an alleged domestic assault incident. He has continued to play football during the investigation and rushed for 70 yards and two scores against Virginia on Saturday. "I have great teammates, great family," Williams said. "Things are going to happen, and I have to learn to roll with the punches and just keep moving forward."

FSU senior RB Karlos Williams rushed for 70 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's win over Virginia.

Williams' two touchdowns were of the short variety, as he scored from two yards out and three yards out. The senior was held to a long carry of just 10 yards and was unable to bust out for any runs that could utilize his elite speed. We were high on Williams' potential at the beginning of the season, but he hasn't produced the way that we were hoping. Other than a 126-yard game against NC State in September, Williams hasn't done much. Against Virginia he only averaged 3.3 YPC.
Nov 9 - 10:16 PM

FSU senior RB Karlos Williams rushed for 72 yards on 16 carries in the school's 42-31 win over Louisville.

Williams never missed practice or playing time after being accused of domestic battery, and those accusations were later dropped. After displaying intriguing running back talent behind Devonta Freeman last year, Williams has struggled to consistently break tackles at the line of scrimmage this season and appears to be a straight-line athlete.
Oct 31 - 9:56 AM

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher announced senior RB Karlos Williams will play Thursday against Louisville.

Fisher declined to comment on Williams' case. Williams is being investigated for domestic battery. On Tuesday, the alleged victim's attorney asked the Tallahassee Police Department to drop its investigation. "She doesn't want to make any comments on the facts of the case," the alleged victim's lawyer, Nathan Prince, said. "There aren't any witnesses that have provided testimony." Prince believes someone alerted the school and police after internet rumors swirled over the weekend that Williams' girlfriend had been beaten.

The alleged victim in the case involving FSU senior RB Karlos Williams has asked for the Tallahassee Police Department to drop their investigation.

The news comes from the alleged victim's lawyer, Nathan Prince. "His client, he said, will not talk to investigators, has not filed a complaint and did not notify TPD or FSU about any alleged domestic battery incident," beat writer Sean Rossman writes. The alleged victim and Williams have a child together and another is on the way, but the report states they are no longer together. It will be difficult for Williams to be arrested if the alleged victim will not testify. The senior running back did practice with the team on Monday.
Oct 28 - 1:45 PM

FSU senior RB Karlos Williams practiced on Monday and his current status is "under review."

Williams is being investigated for alleged domestic battery, but no suspension has been handed down while FSU collects more information. "Domestic battery is a felony offense," beat writer Brendan Sonnene notes. "FSU policy states that athletes may not participate in events if they are charged with a felony." At this time, Williams has not been charged with a crime. Head coach Jimbo Fisher declined to talk to reporters on Monday. ESPN reported on Monday that a state attorney wants to question Williams regarding an armed robbery, but Williams declined.
Oct 28 - 9:53 AM

Tallahassee Police are investigating FSU senior RB Karlos Williams for an alleged domestic battery.

The investigation is on-going and police were notified of the incident on Saturday. The Seminoles did not have a game this past weekend. No further details have been disclosed and the Tallahassee Police Department says none will be given until the investigation is complete. Williams, who has been the school's starting running back this season, became a father in August of 2013 and has since played the title of "Senior" attached to his name.
Oct 27 - 1:55 PM

FSU senior RB Karlos Williams will likely miss Saturday's game against Syracuse with an ankle injury.

"If I had to give a percentage, I would say yes [he'll miss the game]," head coach Jimbo Fisher said. "But it's how guys heal and where they're at." Expect Mario Pender to see more carries. The injury came as a surprise to those who follow the team. Williams has not overly impressed as the lead back this season, as he has not broken enough tackles at the line of scrimmage.
Oct 8 - 11:16 AM

FSU senior RB Karlos Williams ran for 126 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries in Saturday's 56-41 win over NC State.

He also had three catches for 29 yards. This was an important huge performance for Williams in an early conference tilt. Last week, NFL.com reported that NFL scouts had "expressed disappointment" in Williams' performance this year. "The 6-foot-1, 225-pound senior hasn't shown the vision, physicality and agility that some evaluators expected after watching him show intriguing flashes as a junior," NFL.com passed along. "In fact, scouts were disappointed that he didn't have a greater impact on the Clemson game last week with Winston sidelined. An NFC scout after the game said he was surprised Williams couldn't put the Seminoles' offense on his back as the featured runner; his inability to do so could lead to concerns about his potential as a workhorse at the next level."

We were sitting in the front seat of Williams' bandwagon in the preseason, projecting the prospect's unique blend of home run speed and Humvee power nicely to the NFL. It's too soon to hit the eject button, here: Williams will win back the scouts if he performs during the ACC schedule.
