BOCA RATON — Florida Atlantic quarterback Chris Robison’s indefinite suspension was more like a sick day, as the redshirt freshman quarterback was reinstated and practiced on Thursday morning.

Robison, who is expected to compete for the starting quarterback role this spring with redshirt junior and former “Last Chance U” star De’Andre Johnson, was suspended earlier this week for violating team rules. Sources told The Post on Tuesday that Robison, in his first full year with FAU after transferring from Oklahoma last summer, skipped a mandatory tutoring session.

Robison was previously dismissed from the Sooners for violating team rules and being arrested for public intoxication last April. Johnson and Robison split first-team reps on Thursday, though Johnson was the unofficial “starter” and began drills as the No. 1 quarterback.

“Like we just told our players, you got choices. We can’t make the choices for you,” Kiffin said on Tuesday. “If you don’t want to make the right choices, there’s punishments for them. I think our punishments are a bit more severe than most people would be, but we want to teach our guys they gotta do everything right.”
