For the second time in as many days, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh would not confirm reports that starting quarterback Wilton Speight had sustained a broken collarbone in Saturday’s loss to Iowa, saying Speight simply remains “questionable” for this week’s game against Indiana.
“I never really get into the talk,” Harbaugh said. “I’m not a doctor. I hate to be the third person talking about these things because I’m not that. He remains questionable for Saturday and we’ll reevaluate after that.”
On the Big Ten teleconference, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said QB Wilton Speight remains questionable for Saturday.

Harbaugh also disputed the reports on his weekly radio show Monday, calling them “incorrect” and saying Speight’s availability Saturday could come down to a game-time decision.
If the reports are true, Speight would face a lengthy recovery time, with a full return taking up to three months. John O’Korn, the likely starter whose background is detailed here, and Shane Morris are receiving reps in practice at quarterback while Speight sits out.
