Default Stapleton hurt?

Wexell: Tomlin commented that team is looking at Stapleton and will have update for us tomorrow. Sounds ominous.

The Big Legursky started at center with Stapleton getting treatment on knee. Not a good sign for young Darnell's long term.

about 6 hours ago from txt
wexell is a good source. he actually has access to the players and coaches, and his acct is a good one to follow. (said ramon foster looked like a "keeper" playing lg)

Yeah - as long as I know who's putting out the story, I'll listen.

Listening is not believing.

Uh-oh!

Steelers Notebook: Stapleton's knee requires more evaluation

Offensive lineman Darnell Stapleton watched afternoon practice from the top of a hill at Saint Vincent College for the second consecutive day yesterday as he awaited word on what might be wrong with his ailing left knee.

Stapleton, the Steelers' starting right guard, had an MRI, but coach Mike Tomlin said more tests need to be conducted before doctors determine either what is wrong or what to do about it.

"Still evaluating Darnell Stapleton to see where he is," Tomlin said after practice. "He did have an MRI, but we're getting some more work done, some other things looked at. When we're ready to talk about that, I will."

Stapleton had fluid on his knee after apparently injuring it Sunday during practice. He has not been on the field the past two days. Normally, slightly injured players watch from the practice field with their teammates.

Stapleton started 15 games at right guard through the Super Bowl after veteran Kendall Simmons blew out an Achilles tendon in the third game. Stapleton opened training camp at center because starting center Justin Hartwig has a right big toe injury.

Veteran backup tackle/guard Trai Essex has practiced with the first team at right guard.

With Hartwig and Stapleton out, Doug Legursky plays center with the first team and rookie A.Q. Shipley with the second.

As much as I would like to see an upgrade at RG...I dont want to see Stapleton injured for the year. We need his depth and experience. If he is gone that leaves Kemo,Essex and the Rookie Urbik as the guards that will dress every week....other than those three Jeremy Parquet is the only other pure guard on the roster and I think he is camp fodder.

We can't afford any injuries in our weakest unit.
