(Newser) – The Tennessee Titans have a secret weapon this season: a 1-foot, 2-inch linebacker. At least, that's what players of the just-released Madden NFL 15 video game have found in an apparent glitch, which features the diminutive athlete dodging in between the legs of his relatively gigantic opponents. The identity of the pint-sized player is no secret: It's rookie Christian Kirksey, a linebacker for the Cleveland Browns, reports ABC News. Why he's been shrunk down to AstroTurf level or suited up in a Titans uniform is anyone's guess—Electronic Arts didn't answer ABC News' request for comment.

The real-life 6-foot, 2-inch Kirksey doesn't seem to mind the attention. "No matter how small you are, have big dreams, and live big!" he tweeted, followed by the hashtags #reallyLOL, #glitch, and #goodmessagetho. Kirksey also said during an ESPN interview that his first reaction when he found out about the glitch was "Where am I [in] the game? I couldn't even find myself."
