After their loss to Iowa Saturday night, things just got potentially worse for Michigan today.
According to MGoBlog, Wolverine starting quarterback Wilton Speight is out for the remainder of the regular season after suffering a shoulder injury in Iowa City. That shoulder injury apparently is a broken collarbone.

Speight was in noticeable pain Saturday and was listed as a game time decision this weekend against Indiana. That notion is obviously on hold if it is indeed a break for Speight which neither Harbaugh or the school has confirmed.
If the MGoBlog report however is true, it’s expected Harbaugh will turn to Houston transfer John O’Korn to lead the team in to the most vital portion of their season. Coming off what could be a season altering loss to the Hawkeyes, Michigan still has Ohio State left on their schedule which will be the deciding factor on not only their potential trip to the Big Ten Championship Game but also a potential berth in the College Football Playoff.
As far as time missed, we could be looking at 4-6 weeks for Speight on the sidelines and perhaps a return for Michigan’s bowl game… whatever that may be.
