Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight, according to reports, is out for the regular season with a broken collarbone. The injury might have occurred on his team's final offensive play against Iowa.

It's been reported by both mgoblog.com and the Detroit Free Press that Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight has a broken collarbone. The news comes as a surprise to many - considering Speight didn't miss any plays against Iowa on Saturday night. That could be because the injury occurred on the team's final offensive snap.

Here's the play - Speight throws an incomplete pass, but gets crushed by Iowa sophomore defensive lineman Parker Hesse in the process. After the play, he's definitely holding his forearm.

Speight's injury means that John O'Korn could be thrust into the starting role. We're still waiting to hear Jim Harbaugh's reaction to the report.
