FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets say wide receiver David Clowney's Twitter account has been hacked, and a series of expletive-filled tweets are not being written by him.

The Jets issued a statement Monday night alerting fans that a "rogue tweeter" was sending out vulgar messages under Clowney's account. Clowney, who has more than 6,700 followers, was not available for comment.

Clowney, a frequent poster, has had previous Twitter-related trouble. He was suspended by coach Rex Ryan for one game earlier in the season when he admitted posting that he was unhappy with his playing time in the team's game against New England in Week 2.
