ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WOOD) — It looks like Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight is out for the rest of the regular season.

Citing sources, ESPN is reporting that Speight, a redshirt sophomore, will not play in this weekend’s matchup against Indiana.

Michigan football blog MGoBlog and other news outlets are reporting that Speight has a broken collarbone. He took a hard hit to the left shoulder during Michigan’s Saturday game against Iowa, which the Wolverines lost.

A broken collarbone would also put Speight on the sidelines for the season closer at Ohio State.

Backup quarterback John O’Korn transferred from the University of Houston, where he was a starter. As relief for Speight this season, he completed 13 of 18 passes for 114 yards and has two touchdowns to his name, according to stats compiled by ESPN.

If No. 4 Michigan (9-1) beats both Indiana and Ohio State, they’ll be headed to the Big Ten championship game.
