Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight will miss the rest of the regular season with a broken collarbone, MGoBlog reports

Speight sustained an injury to his left shoulder during Saturday's 14–13 loss at Iowa, the first defeat of the season for the Wolverines. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said on Monday that Speight would be a game-time decision for Saturday's home finale against Indiana. 

MGoBlog reports Speight could return for the team's bowl game. 

Speight, a junior, has passed for 2,156 yards and 15 touchdowns with just four interceptions this season for the Wolverines, who are 9–1.

John O'Korn, who started for a year and a half at University of Houston before transferring to Michigan, is the team's backup quarterback. This season, O'Korn has completed 13 of 18 passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns in limited action. 

Michigan will conclude its season with a home game against Indiana and a road game at Ohio State. Depending on how the Wolverines fare, they could also play in the Big Ten Championship on Dec. 3.
