Hard to say what this move means, but the Raiders have called up center James Stone from the practice squad to the active roster. The team currently has Rodney Hudson — who fought through a kidney stone to play last week — and Jon Feliciano at the position.

The move could be as much about Woodson-Luster, who had a holding penalty that called back a 100-yard kick return touchdown by Cordarrelle Patterson last Sunday. The undrafted rookie has appeared in every game this season, mostly on special teams, collecting 4 combined special teams tackles (1 solo).

Or it could be the team would like to keep Stone from being signed away by another team. They recently lost talented undrafted rookie corner Breon Borders to the Bills.

Stone was originally an undrafted free agent signee by the Falcons out of Tennessee in 2014. He has played in 19 career games with 10 starts, all coming from 2014-15 with the Atlanta Falcons. He was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past offseason and training camp before being waived in the final roster cuts. The Raiders added him to their practice squad two days later.
