Madden 15's 14-inch linebacker looks small but plays big

We know a lot of people think of NFL rookies as small and insignificant, but this is just silly.

Madden NFL 15 fans are buzzing about a tiny Tennesee Titans linebacker, an apparent glitch in the pro football video game that made its debut last month.

Middle linebacker Christian Kirksey is listed in the game as 1-foot-2-inches tall and 235 pounds (he might need to lose some weight with those proportions). But the little ankle-biter is tough enough to bring down 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

A YouTube video posted Monday by Shake4ndBake had been viewed more than 370,000 times by Wednesday morning.  On one play, as Kirksey covers fullback John Kuhn, the user narrates, "At 1-foot-2, he's got a pretty nice jump, and you see, he just messes (with) him enough, he gives him a tug on the sock and just throws off his balance."

For his part, Kirksey called the glitch "hilarious" on his Twitter page, @chriskirksey20. "No matter how small you are, have big dreams, and live big! #madden #glitch #1'2 #reallyLOL #goodmessagetho."
