Stapleton and Phillips were both working at both guard and center, I guess Stapleton showed more promise.

Rookie free-agent offensive line man Darnell Stapleton will have surgery today for a lateral meniscus tear in his knee and will be out a minimum three weeks.

Stapleton was out for a while during camp. Like I said, I'm just relaying what I heard on the Steelers roundtable and what I read in the PPG on the guy (which wasn't much). To be honest, I did not pay much attention to Stapleton when I went to Latrobe nor did I keep an eye on him during the preseason.

I'm guessing they like what they saw in his college days with Rutgers and what he has brought to the team since the start of camp up until now.
