Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh gave some excellent news regarding senior quarterback Wilton Speight on Monday.

According to a report from Angelique Chengelis of The Detroit News, Speight has been cleared to return to practice. Speight will be unable to avoid contact, however, for the foreseeable future.

It’s great news for Speight, who has been on the sidelines since the Sept. 23 game against Purdue when he went down with three fractured vertebrae.

At the time of the injury, there was some uncertainty regarding whether Speight would be able to return this season.

While Speight won’t be returning anytime soon, it’s promising to hear he is close to making a full recovery.

The No. 19 Wolverines return to action this Saturday against No. 5 Wisconsin. The game will be the focus of ESPN’s College GameDay, which is coming to Madison for the Big Ten clash.
