                      === Chargers' Bigby lands on IR ===
 
 San  Diego,  CA (Sports Network) -  The San Diego Chargers placed safety Atari
 Bigby  on  injured reserve Tuesday  after he hurt  his groin during the team's
 loss to the Baltimore Ravens over the weekend.
 
 Bigby  sustained  the injury during the  first half of Sunday's 16-13 overtime
 setback. The seven-year veteran had started each of San Diego's first 11 games
 at strong safety this season and ranked second on the team with 68 tackles.
 
 The  31-year-old  signed a two-year contract  with the Chargers in March after
 spending  the 2011  campaign with Seattle. Bigby entered the league with Green
 Bay  in  2005 and  compiled 10  interceptions while making  33 starts over the
 course of five seasons with the Packers.
 
 To fill the roster spot, the Chargers re-signed linebacker Bront Bird.
 
 Bird  made  the Chargers as  an undrafted rookie in  2011 and appeared in nine
 games  as primarily a special teamer. The Texas Tech product was waived by the
 team during final roster cuts in September.
