Fullback Bruce Miller, who was arrested on suspicion of spousal abuse last month, is not taking part in the first phase of the San Francisco 49ers' voluntary offseason workout program, general manager Trent Baalke told reporters Friday.

Miller was "at home in Georgia, taking care of business," Baalke said. The four-year veteran was arrested March 5 in Santa Clara, California.

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

Miller has yet to be formally charged as an investigation into the matter continues.
