Report: Michigan Quarterback Wilton Speight Out For Season

Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight is out of the season after suffering a broken collarbone, according to reports.

Wilton Speight, the starting quarterback of the Michigan Wolverines, is out for the season with a broken collarbone, according to a report from mgoblog.com. Speight played the duration of the game against Iowa, and it is not known when Speight suffered the injury.

According to mgoblog.com, Speight will be out for the remainder of the regular season, but could be in line for a return to a bowl game. That is unlikely however, as collarbone injuries usually take 6-8 weeks to heal, depending on how bad the break is.

It's assumed senior John O'Korn will take over as the Wolverines quarterback for the final two games of the regular season. O'Korn has thrown just 18 passes so far this season, completing 13 for 114 yards and two touchdowns.

This is a huge loss for the Wolverines who have a huge matchup with Ohio State looming in the final week of the regular season.

Michigan plays Indiana this Saturday.
