Bojorquez will enter training camp as the team's punter, but he will face competition, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.
Special teams coordinator Heath Farwell said Friday that it's Bojorquez's job to lose and that he needs to be more consistent. The Bills signed kicker and punter Kaare Vedvik this offseason and he will be Bojorquez's main competition come training camp. Bojorquez ranked 30th in gross and net punt average among qualified punters in 2019.
Bojorquez served as the Bills' only punter in 2019, kicking 79 times for a 41.9 gross average and 37.7 net average.
Bojorquez ranked 30th in both gross and net punt average of all punters with 20 or more kicks, though he can be given some leeway in that he kicks in a poor-weather stadium, which also happens to be one of the NFL's windiest venues. Plus, the Bills have to be happy with his 34 kicks inside the 20, which tied for third in the league. Bojorquez will almost certainly enter training camp as the incumbent, but he'll also have some competition in the form of Kaare Vedvik.
The Bills waived Bojorquez's teammate, Cory Carter, on Monday.
That leaves Bojorquez as the only remaining punter on the roster, though it's worth noting the Bills made a switch just ahead of the regular season last year. Bojorquez has had ups and downs this summer, so even though Carter is out of the picture with a knee injury, the former can further solidify his spot with a strong performance in the preseason finale.

Bojorquez had reportedly been playing through a shoulder injury, but the issue will ultimately force him to miss the remainder of the 2018 campaign. The Bills re-signed veteran punter Colton Schmidt to replace him as the active punter the rest of the way.

It's good news for the Bills who weren't keen on the prospects of having to bring in an additional punter in the event that Bojorquez wouldn't suit up for Sunday's game. With Bojorquez steering clear of Wednesday's report, it seems expected that he'll be ready for Week 6 action.
Bojorquez is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a shoulder injury.
If Bojorquez can't return, the Bills may have to get creative with their punting strategies without a backup in place. Perhaps kicker Stephen Hauschka can assume the role, but whether he has punting experience is unclear at the moment.
