Jim Harbaugh Can't Confirm Report About Wilton Speight's Injury

Wilton Speight was injured on the final play of Michigan's game.


Jim Harbaugh has commented on the Wilton Speight is out for the year report.

It was reported earlier today, first by MGoBlog and later by other outlets, that Michigan starting quarterback Wilton Speight is out for the season with a broken collarbone. He apparently sustained the injury late in the contest against Iowa on Saturday night.

On his weekly radio show, Jim Harbaugh did not confirm the injury.

Harbaugh says he hasn't been told by doctors that Speight is out for the year with a broken collarbone. He did say he'll be out "for a couple days" at least.

Speight, a 6-foot-6, 243-pound junior out of Richmond, Va., has passed for 2,156 yards, 15 touchdowns and four interceptions this season while leading the 9-1 Wolverines.

Michigan is expected to start John O'Korn, a senior transfer from Houston, at quarterback on Saturday if Speight is indeed out.

The Wolverines are set to kick off against the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
