The Michigan Wolverines may be without starting quarterback Wilton Speight against Indiana this Saturday, according to ESPN.
Speight injured his non-throwing shoulder in this past weekend’s loss to Iowa. According to multiple reports, Speight broke his collarbone although head coach Jim Harbaugh has not confirmed it. Harbaugh said Speight “could be” a game-time decision on Saturday.
Backup quarterbacks John O’Korn and Shane Morris will be taking the majority of the team’s snaps at practice at the beginning of the week.
Harbaugh reiterated that Speight’s season has not ended due to his injury but that he will miss some practice sessions throughout the week.
O’Korn has had plenty of playing time throughout the season, especially during games the Wolverines have dominated in. He has completed 13 of his 18 passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns. Teammates are also optimistic with what O’Korn could bring the team this weekend as he is known to run more than Speight.
Speight has 2,156 yards and 15 touchdowns in his first 10 starts this season. He seemed to have injured his non-throwing arm in the fourth quarter against Iowa and threw for only 103 yards, his second-lowest total of the season.
