Michigan Football: Wilton Speight out several weeks, John O’Korn will start


Michigan Football


Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh announced Monday that quarterback Wilton Speight will miss multiple week’s with an undisclosed injury. As a result, John O’Korn will assume the starting role.

Speight was originally injured back on September 23rd against Purdue. Details on his injury have been sparse to completely non-existent as the program has been completely tight-lipped on the specifics.

In his first game action of the season, O’Korn went 18-for-26 passing for 270 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Michigan’s 28-10 win over the Boilermakers. Likewise, O’Korn seemingly gave the Michigan offense a much-needed spark that was missing thus far though out the still young season. Moreover, it’s unclear if O’Korn would have gotten the start this past weekend if Michigan wasn’t on a bye, that is if Speight was healthy enough go – which Harbaugh made mention he wasn’t.
