Michigan's 14-10 loss to Michigan State is being compounded by more bad news regarding Week 1 starting quarterback Wilton Speight. Speight suffered three broken vertebrae in his back and is "likely" to miss the rest of the season against Purdue, according to ESPN. He will be re-evaluated in about two months and it's not clear yet whether the reported injury will require surgery. The ESPN report also states that play-by-play announcer Chris Fowler said during Saturday night's broadcast that Speight said he has three broken vertebrae. Fowler added that Speight is "out, probably for the season." Michigan has not officially confirmed the nature of Speight's injury or the timeline for recovery.
