Michigan QB Speight (shoulder) starts against Ohio State

Football Standings Generic

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight started for the third-ranked Wolverines against No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday after sitting out last week with a shoulder injury.

Speight hurt his non-throwing shoulder two weeks ago and sat out last week against Indiana. John O’Korn started in his place.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said Speight was improving but gave no clue about whether the junior would play against the Buckeyes.

Speight did some throwing with a team manager shortly after Michigan arrived at Ohio Stadium and later went through drills in uniform with the team’s other quarterbacks.

Speight has passed for 2,152 yards and 15 touchdowns with four interceptions this season. O’Korn was 7 for 16 for 59 yards last week in his first start of the season.
