SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Chargers placed strong safety Atari Bigby on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday because of a groin injury and signed linebacker Bront Bird.
Bigby, who started all 11 games, was hurt in the first half Sunday in a 16-13 overtime loss to Baltimore.
Bird played in nine games with the Chargers in 2011 after making the squad as an undrafted rookie from Texas Tech. He was released during final roster cuts in August.
The Chargers also filled a vacancy on their practice squad by signing safety Sean Cattouse, an undrafted rookie from California.
