Yes, that's what happened to my bike and causing dragging. The piston seal had some black rubber bits from the brake hose embedded in it.

Running at high speed would heat up the rotor, so I had to let it cool for 20 mins to release the piston.
I also was having some metal to metal contact on the rotor so bought a new one from eBay - Approximately US $108.92
