Football was back in Philadelphia Thursday night and many Eagles players delivered a message bigger than the actual game.

During warm-ups prior to the team's preseason opener against the Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field, a number of Eagles players wore shirts citing statistical figures on voter registration and percentages of prison populations.

Malcolm Jenkins, one of the NFL's most socially active players, was a part of the group.

He sent out this tweet pregame:

Here are some of the players and shirts, with pictures courtesy of NBC Sports Philadelphia's Josh Ellis.
