U-T San Diego reports Chargers starting safety Atari Bigby will miss 3-5 weeks with a groin injury he suffered Sunday. There are five weeks left in the season.

Barring an unexpected box-office binge or help from corporate sponsors, this will the second blackout in as many weeks and third of the season. It’ll be the Chargers eighth in their past 22 home games since 2010, including eighth in their past 16 that weren’t broadcast in prime-time.
