I got my 4 other kegs today, finally and went ahead and racked one batch to a keg but weight up 5oz!

Should i just put it back in the fermenter for a few days?

No, it'll be ok. If it overcarbs when it's finished, just pull the pressure release a couple of times until it's not overcarbed any more. It should be fine, though.

Big plus with kegs, you can adjust the pressure in either direction.
