    sounds like you squeezed the lever when the wheel was off. to get the pads open again, take something wide (at least 1/2") and flat, like a butter knife or flat head screw driver, and work the brake pads apart until the pistons have fully retracted. be careful not to mar the pads.. put the wheel back in and squeeze the lever a couple times, and things should be back to normal.
