Wilton Speight Out For Multiple Weeks

Michigan will be without starting quarterback Wilton Speight against Michigan State.

Michigan's starting quarterback was ruled unable to play in Saturday's game against Michigan State (7:30 p.m., ABC), and "for multiple weeks", head coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday during his weekly news conference.

At least 17 killed in triple bombing in Syria's Damascus
There was no immediate claim for the bombing, which was the first such attack in the city since July. The Syrian Ministry of Interior said that suicide bombers had blown up in front of a police station.

Speight suffered what Harbaugh called a "soft tissues" injury against Purdue.

Brandon Peters will be the backup, while Dylan McCaffrey will serve as Michigan's third-string quarterback. With a little more than five minutes left in the first quarter, the signal caller was sacked by Markus Bailey before absorbing another hit from Eddy Wilson on his way to the ground. The Wolverines trailed 10-7 at halftime, but O'Korn led the team to a 28-10 victory.

Dave Strader, broadcasting legend and Stars play-by-play man, dies at 62
In addition to his work in hockey, Strader also worked for the WNBA, the NBA D-League, college basketball and the Olympics. After returning to the booth in February to call an overtime win, the Stars players saluted him at center ice.

That O'Korn has shown he can move the offense and finish drives should give MI confidence going into its rivalry game. He has served mostly as a backup after arriving at MI.

Senior John O'Korn will take Speight's place. That's not all on Speight, but his numbers (three touchdowns, two pick-sixes and a 120.9 passer rating) are what they are.

New York Sending More Help to Puerto Rico
The governor says that this has left 9,500 shipping containers sitting in the port while citizens face shortages. Meanwhile, Puerto Ricans are waiting hours in line to get gas, food and cash. "This hurricane was catastrophic".

With Speight missing "multiple weeks" at the least, O'Korn will be forced to take the reigns of a MI team that has been led by the defense, up to this point.
