sprouted onions?

i have a bag of red onions that i've been keeping in a covered basket in my kitchen. one of them has sprouted some green shoots from one end. can i still use this onion like a regular one, or it will it taste different? can i just chop the sprouted part off? i hate to throw it away since the rest of it looks perfectly okay.
