Earlier on Monday, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said during his news conference that it was possible that the Wolverines would be without Speight on Saturday. Harbaugh said Speight “could be” a game-time decision.
Harbaugh said John O’Korn and Shane Morris would get most of the reps in practice this week.
“If John’s (O’Korn) number is called, we’re fully confident in him,” Michigan tight end Jake Butt said. “We’ve seen what he has since he’s been here, and we’re confident with him.”
Michigan (9-1 overall, 6-1 Big Ten) is playing at home against Indiana at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. The Wolverines visit Ohio State at noon ET on Nov. 26 to close the regular season. If Michigan beats the Hoosiers and the Buckeyes, it would win the Big Ten East division and play in the Big Ten title game in Indianapolis.
Speight struggled at Iowa in Michigan’s 14-13 loss, the Wolverines’ first defeat this season. He was 11 of 26 for 103 yards and one interception as the Hawkeyes kicked the game-winning field goal on the last play of the game.
Speight has completed 160 of 257 passes for 2,156 yards and 15 touchdowns with four interceptions this season.
O’Korn, a Houston transfer, is 13 of 18 for 114 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. Morris is 4 of 5 for 45 yards.
