``Investigators believe these people have information regarding this case,'' Buffalo Police Department spokesman Michael DeGeorge said.
Erie County District Attorney Frank Clark has impaneled a grand jury to investigate the May 31 incident when Lynch's 2008 Porsche Cayenne allegedly sped off after hitting and injuring a female pedestrian.
The grand jury is scheduled to convene June 20, DeGeorge said.
Clark - who was unavailable for comment Thursday - has previously said he's confident charges will be filed in the case.
DeGeorge didn't name those who were subpoenaed Thursday.
The Buffalo News reported that the three players being issued subpoenas were rookie wide receivers James Hardy and Steve Johnson and second-year offensive lineman Christian Gaddis.
The paper also reported that Bills owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr. and chief operating officer Russ Brandon and three other Bills officials also were expected to be called to testify.
DeGeorge did rule out the possibility that other high-ranking team officials could be subpoenaed.
