Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh was asked Tuesday about reports starting quarterback Wilton Speight suffered a broken collarbone at the end of the Iowa game last Saturday.

He was asked specifically if the reports are accurate and the time frame for Speight’s return.

“I never really get into the talk. I’m not a doctor,” Harbaugh said Tuesday on the Big Ten conference call. “He remains questionable for Saturday, and we’ll re-evalute after that.”

Michigan is host to Indiana on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.

During his radio show Monday night, Harbaugh said reports that Speight is out for the season are “incorrect.”

Jon Jansen, who hosted the show from the Pizza House, asked Harbaugh about reports circulating that Speight is done for the season. 

"The report you're referring to that he's out for the season, I have not heard that from the doctors, so that's incorrect,” Harbaugh said.

Harbaugh again said that it could be a game-time decision whether Speight plays against Indiana. 

"He's going to be out of practice for a couple days," Harbaugh said.

Meanwhile, Harbaugh said backups John O’Korn and Shane Morris looked “sharp” in practice Monday.

“It was one of the best Monday practices we’ve had,” Harbaugh said on the show.

O’Korn is expected to start Saturday at Michigan Stadium against Indiana in the final regular-season home game. Michigan's regular season ends the following week at Ohio State.
