(Image courtesy of Stuart Zaas/Denver Broncos) The Denver Broncos will wear their alternate all-blue (jersey and pants) uniforms when they take on the San Diego Chargers at Sports Authority Field @ Mile High this weekend.  As part of the NFL’s Salute to Service campaign, each player will also be representing the military branch of his choice with a decal of that branch’s logo on his helmet. The team captains, including quarterback Peyton Manning, will have camouflage captain patches on their respective jerseys and the skill players will break out Nike’s camo Vapor Jet Gloves.  When the team takes the field, they will be led by 25 soldiers from the 4th Infantry Division at Fort Carson Army Base. Before kickoff, the team will honor the military with a patriotic pregame show. The team is asking fans to arrive early in order to sing the National Anthem together before the game. At halftime, practice squad defensive lineman and Colorado Air National Guard 1st Lieutenant Ben Garland will present a game ball to military members. “That’s a huge honor,” Garland told the team’s official website.  “Any time you’re able to represent not only the country, but represent the Broncos in an event like that, it’s a huge honor for me.” Kickoff is scheduled for 2:25 p.m. MT on Sunday afternoon and the game will be broadcast on CBS.  Join us on game day as we cover the team’s first all-blue appearance of 2012 — see you at kickoff!
