Jim Harbaugh says Wilton Speight is at practice, ‘chomping at the bit’

Michigan entered last week’s AP Poll as the No. 19 team in the country and had a game against No. 2 Penn State.

The Nittany Lions’ white-out against the Wolverines resulted in a 42-13 defeat for Jim Harbaugh’s team. With the loss, Michigan is now 5-2 on the season and is not ranked in this week’s AP Poll.

With the 29-point loss as the team’s most recent performance, Harbaugh was asked about his quarterback situation going forward.

Harbaugh on Wilton Speight: “Get healthy – that’s where most of his efforts are being concentrated. He’s at practice. I know he’s champing at the bit. His bones (are) healing back together. It takes time. He’s been a good teammate. I know he’s chomping at the bit.”

After being asked about Brandon Peters and if he’s going to get more snaps, Harbaugh said, “Just going along the process of readying him to play. The backup quarterback always needs to be ready to play.”

Harbaugh on Lavert Hill’s gesture and apology“He’s addressed his inappropriate gesture. We discussed it and he feels bad about it, and he promises it won’t happen again.”

Harbaugh on Chase Winovich: “He’s working through something. We’ll see better today what the extent of it is.”

The Wolverines’ next game will be against Rutgers at noon E.T. on Oct. 28 at Michigan Stadium. The game will be televised on BTN.
