FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP)

New York Jets running back Shonn Greene says he was ''shocked'' by a published report in which he was quoted as suggesting the team might need to make a change at quarterback.

Greene says Thursday the Yahoo! story included quotes that were ''completely out of context.'' He adds that he never said anything about replacing Mark Sanchez with Tim Tebow as the quarterback. The story quoted Greene as saying: ''You feel bad for Mark, but at the same time you want to win games. ... If you want to win games, you've got to try something.''

Michael Silver, who wrote the story, wrote on Twitter that he stands by his column ''100 pct'' and quoted Greene accurately.

Greene says he texted Sanchez when he heard about the story, and the two are fine.
