You should discard the potatoes if they have many big sprouts and look withered or wrinkled. 

When it comes to food safety, sprouting potatoes are no different from any other type of aged produce: If you are unsure, discard it.  

It is recommended to discard potatoes that have sprouted, according to the National Capital Poison Center. 

You can still use a kitchen knife or potato peeler to remove the sprouted parts of potatoes if they have just started to sprout.
