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!”

Cleveland opens its season on Sunday in Pittsburgh.
