Report: Speight may be done for season
Written by Matt Pargoff   


Prior to the start of the Michigan’s home game against Michigan State on Saturday evening, ABC play-by-play man Chris Fowler reported that quarterback Wilton Speight is probably done for the rest of the season, suffering from three fractured vertebrae in his spine.

Fowler cited Speight as the direct source of the diagnosis, on which head coach Jim Harbaugh had previously declined to provide details.

A redshirt junior, Speight started all but one of the Wolverines’ games in 2016, winning the job again in fall camp this year. He was injured just four games into Wolverines’ current campaign when a Purdue player crashed down on the back of his head and neck after the Speight had already been taken down.

In his absence, the Michigan offense has been led by fifth-year senior John O’Korn.
