Miller not participating in voluntary workout

Fullback Bruce Miller is not attending the 49ers' voluntary workouts while dealing with a recent arrest.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - San Francisco 49ers fullback Bruce Miller has not been attending the team's voluntary workouts over the last two weeks, general manger Trent Baalke said.

"That situation is ongoing. He's at home in Georgia taking care of business," Baalke said Friday.

Miller last month was arrested for spousal abuse after he allegedly pushed a woman to the ground and destroyed her cell phone. He has yet to be charged with a crime, as the Santa Clara police department has forwarded the case to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office, according to a report from CSN Bay Area.

"(Players) don't have to be here at this stage of the season," Baalke said. "We sat down with Bruce and feel it's very important for him to handle this situation. Once it's handled, we'll move on from there."

The District Attorney is continuing to review the case.
