THE ROAD TO SB XLVIII

From the opening kickoff to the Super Bowl, the best NFL action is on FOX. See the full NFL on FOX schedule.

August has been a tough month for Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller. First, there was an arrest for failure to appear after Miller missed a court date related to a traffic misdemeanor. Then, earlier Monday, news broke that the Pro Bowl pick's initial four-game suspension for substance policy violations may be expanded to six games. Now, the Broncos standout faces the possibility of being named a witness in the investigation of an October incident at a Denver bar that led to the stabbing deaths of five individuals.

Miller's name appears on a list of 100 potential witnesses in the murder trial of Dexter Lewis — a 23-year-old man accused of murdering five patrons of Fero's Bar and Grill during a haphazard robbery attempt. According to the Denver Post, there is no indication Miller has ties to anyone involved in the case — but Miller did previously speak with detectives handling the case.

Patrick Smyth, a spokesperson for the Denver Broncos, told USA Today that the team knew Miller could potentially be called to testify, but insisted that the linebacker has "no direct involvement in the case."

In addition to first-degree murder, Lewis is accused of a slew of other charges, including robbery and arson. Prosecutors in the case are seeking the death penalty.
