The Super Bowl MVP has struggled this preseason, including a three-turnover performance against the Cleveland Browns last week. Entering training camp, there were four competitors. And Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson is well aware.
Taylor was 11-of-16 for 65 yards and ran twice for five yards against the Eagles on Thursday.

One week ago against New England, Foles would leave with a shoulder strain. But, he threw for just 76 yards and tallied an interception in Cleveland's 5-0 win over Philadelphia. And since Wentz still has yet to return to action, there's a solid chance Pederson will have no choice but to put Foles under center for the season opener against the Atlanta Falcons on September 6 while anxiously waiting for Wentz' knee to fully heal up. If he can play a little bit in Week 4 of the preseason, all the better. He'd also like to know at least a week in advance if Wentz will be ready to go for Week 1.
