The New Day's Xavier Woods is expected to return to the road for the company as of this Friday's Smackdown taping in Kansas City, has confirmed.    

We are told Woods is expected to be back regularly on the road going forward but there's no word as to whether he has been cleared to return to the ring to wrestle.

Woods announced on 1/13 during a G4 live stream of Attack of The Show that he suffered an injury to his plantaris muscle of his calf while executing a DDT from the outside into the ring during a match.  He last wrestled on 1/7 and stated on 1/13 that he expected to be "good to go" in 4-6 weeks, so while he may return to TV, he likely would still be out for the Rumble match.  

This Friday's Smackdown is slated to feature New Day's Big E & Kofi Kingston vs. Madcap Moss & Happy Corbin.
