WATCH 'Madden NFL 15' Game Glitch Creates 14-Inch Player

Christian Kirksey, linebacker for the Cleveland Browns, stands at 6-feet-2 but in the recently released Madden NFL 15 video game, he barely reaches the shins of his opponents.

Madden NFL 15 was launched on Microsoft's Xbox One on Aug. 26, and Kirksey is the biggest topic in social media commentary about the game. In the new video game, Kirksey is not only wearing a Tennessee Titans uniform, he is only a few inches tall.
