With Florida Atlantic set to play the biggest on-campus game in recent memory, the Owls are expected to welcome back a key member of the offense. According to two sources, suspended receiver Kalib Woods will rejoin the team for Saturday’s game against North Texas at FAU Stadium. Woods, who led the team in receiving last season, had been suspended indefinitely since June following his arrest for felony battery stemming from a January fight in Boca Raton. Woods, who lost his scholarship after incident, returns as a walk-on. He had a court date Monday, but it was rescheduled for Jan. 10, 2018. The case is still ongoing. Woods was initially booked June 13 on charges of punching a man at The Venue banquet hall in Boca Raton. The incident, which occurred in January, left the man with a broken jaw. After the arrest, Woods was suspended from the team, but in early September was allowed to rejoin in a non-playing capacity while charges were outstanding. Owls receiver Kamrin Solomon, who was also involved in the altercation, was suspended the first two games before returning against Bethune-Cookman Sept. 16.
