After scoring only 10 points Saturday night at home in a 14-10 losing effort against in-state rival Michigan State, the quarterback controversy for Michigan just got deeper, and it's not going to get better. 

After coming down with an injury in Michigan's September 23 win against Purdue, Wilton Speight is confirmed as having three broken vertebrae in his back.

The injury was first confirmed on ABC by Chris Fowler Saturday prior to the game.

He'll be re-evaluated down the line, 6-8 weeks from the original injury.

Should current starter John O'Korn go down with any kind of serious injury, the Wolverines' options would include sophomore Brandon Peters and true freshman Dylan McCaffery. Neither of the two has seen any in-game action while at Michigan.
