Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh updated the status of quarterback Wilton Speight leading up to Saturday's trip to Ohio State.

The million dollar question for Michigan ahead of Saturday's trip to Ohio State revolves around the status of starting quarterback Wilton Speight.

Speight missed this past week's win over Indiana after suffering an injury to his left shoulder late in a loss at Iowa.

"No I don't have an update today," Harbaugh said when asked about Speight's status Monday. "I have not evaluated him today."

Filling in for Speight was backup John O'Korn who had mixed results. O'Korn finished 7-for-16 with 59-yards through the air.

Should Speight be out, the plan is likely to go with O'Korn again in Columbus.

"It's the same thing we've said," Harbaugh said. "It hasn't changed. It's a day-to-day process and evaluation."

Based on the look test since Speight took the hit against the Hawkeyes, Harbaugh believes progress has been made.

"He's been better every day," Harbaugh said. "That's from my perspective, he's gotten better and better everyday. 

"Now again, to clarify, I'm not a doctor, no medical degree, didn't take any medical classes at Michigan. But to my eye, he's looked better everyday."
