Michigan Quarterback Wilton Speight Out 'Multiple Weeks'

"I thought it was egregious", Harbaugh told reporters on Monday.

The 4-0 and No. 7 ranked Wolverines will look to remain unbeaten when the host (3-1) Michigan State this coming Saturday under the lights.

MI had its bye last week, but Harbaugh told reporters Speight wouldn't have been able to play regardless.

The Michigan Wolverines will be without starting quarterback Wilton Speight for the foreseeable future, according to head football coach Jim Harbaugh.

Speight went down with an undisclosed injury during Michigan's win over Purdue on September 23.

Brandon Peters will be the backup, while Dylan McCaffrey will serve as Michigan's third-string quarterback.

"John's done a fantastic job ever since he got here", Harbaugh said.

"It meant a lot for me, even if I don't play the rest of the year, to be able to go out and beat my former coach", O'Korn said. "I think that speaks volumes", Harbaugh added.

Speight is 44-for-81 passing for 581 yards, 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.

With Speight out, John O'Korn stepped in and led the Wolverines to a win.

O'Korn appeared in eight games last season, completing 8 of his 20 pass attempts for 173 yards and two touchdowns. Overall at MI, O'Korn has completed 39-of-61 passes for 480 yards and three touchdowns.
