Stone cleared the 4 p.m. waiver deadline on Friday and the team re-signed Stone to the practice squad.

“He told me I’m going to play this year for the Ravens.”
Stone made the 53-man roster but had not earned a game day role on special teams or in the secondary through the first month of the season.
Baltimore rolled to a 27-3 win over Cincinnati on Sunday, improving to 4-1 overall. The Ravens return to action at 1 p.m. Oct. 18 when they travel to Philadelphia.
