BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns rookie linebacker Chris Kirksey is a big man, on and off the field. But he’s more like a munchkin in “Madden 15.”

The new version of the popular football video game has a glitch that shrinks Kirksey to a 14-inch player, running around on the field among giants.

The 6-foot-2, 235-pound Kirksey is being big about the little goof. He posted on Twitter that “No matter how small you are, have big dreams, and live big!”
