, Lewis appeared in one preseason game, the finale against the New York Giants. He had two tackles in the game.Bojorquez came to New England as an undrafted free agent this offseason. He played collegiately at New Mexico, where he averaged 45.1 yards per punt over his junior and senior seasons. This preseason, he did not attempt a punt in a game.UPDATE (2:28 pm)As many had expected, the Bills released punter Colton Schmidt to make room on the roster for Bojorquez.Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen is the only first-team quarterback on Monday Josh Allen will be working with the starters while Nathan Peterman practices with the second string today, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced at a media scrum before Monday’s practice.

, has done everything he should to earn a starting job at the beginning of the season. He’s 17-of-20 passing for 231 yards (11.6 yards per attempt) with two touchdowns and an interception that bounced of his receiver’s hands. He’s only taken a single sack while playing one game with Buffalo’s starters and one with the third string.His teammate Allen has been less statistically impressive, but repeatedly pops on the field with plays that show advanced maturity along with his physical talents. The rookie went 3-for-3 on scoring drives after Buffalo’s starters notched four straight three-and-outs last week against the Cleveland Browns. Through the preseason, he’s 18-of-32 passing for 176 yards and two touchdowns. Though he’s taken two sacks, he also added six carries for 47 yards.AJ McCarron was also in the mix for a starting role through the first half of the preseason, but his shoulder injury will take him out of the running for this one.The Bills have their preseason “dress rehearsal” game on Sunday, August 26th, in Buffalo against the Cincinnati Bengals. The player who earns the starting role for that game will have the inside track at being the opening day starter.
