There was support for both presidential candidates in the Eagles' locker room, but no player was more outspoken than safety Malcolm Jenkins - and he was not in favor of Donald Trump.

"I think there was a lot of concern - I know for myself - you look at all the things Trump has done in the entire campaign and the entire process, to now see him in the throne, in the seat, is nerve-racking for me," Jenkins said. "And I know a lot of the friends I have, just waiting to see what that's like, and if it'll reflect anything of what he's shown already. If so, that's very concerning."

Jenkins stayed up Tuesday to follow the results. He said it was the main topic of conversation in the locker room Wednesday. Players had discussions about the economy, foreign affairs, and the Electoral College. He described his teammates as "shocked."

"Obviously, I voted the other way," Jenkins said. "But that's what America is all about. You get a chance to put your opinion and put your vote. And America spoke."

Logan says he'll play

Eagles defensive tackle Bennie Logan told reporters he would play Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Logan missed the last three games with a groin injury. He was a full participant Wednesday in practice.

Guard Allen Barbre (hamstring), safety Terrence Brooks (hamstring), tight end Brent Celek (rib), and linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (hamstring) did not practice. Celek is expected to play Sunday even with a fractured rib. There is no word on the other players, who all have the "week-to-week" designation.

Defensive tackle Taylor Hart was limited with an ankle injury.

Filling Huff's roster spot

The Eagles still have not filled Josh Huff's spot on the 53-man roster, but coach Doug Pederson hinted that it could be a player on the practice squad. Wide receiver Paul Turner and cornerback Aaron Grymes, both of whom impressed in the preseason, are the top candidates.

"We've got some guys we're evaluating on our practice squad," Pederson said. "We don't have to make a move right now. There's no hurry."
