Miller has pleaded no contest to his disturbing the peace charge and will rejoin the 49ers' preseason activities, CSN Bay Area reports.

It didn't sound good for Miller when he was arrested on domestic violence charges this March. But once the investigation was complete, they found that there was no physical assault stemming from the argument with his then-fiancee. Assuming this matter is indeed put behind him, Miller can get started on competing for the starting fullback role with teammate Trey Millard.

Miller was arrested last Thursday in Santa Clara, CA on suspicion of domestic abuse, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

The case has been transferred to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, but no matter what comes to light in the coming weeks and months, Miller will likely be subject to suspension once his legal matters are resolved.

Miller caught three passes for 17 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Miller didn't have a spectacular season from a fantasy perspective, but he saw increased usage in the second half of the season when injuries and lack of production from the 49ers' tight ends forced Colin Kaepernick to look elsewhere for checkdowns. He will be used in a similar role in 2015, which will help the 49ers' offense, but won't provide enough usage to help those in fantasy.

Miller caught four passes for a season-high 56 yards in Sunday's loss to Seattle. He also carried the ball two times for four yards.

Miller was asked to take on a bigger receiving role with Garrett Celek (ankle) leaving the game with an injury. That is now three consecutive weeks where Miller has shown deep league production. His Swiss-army knife style of play is very useful for a 49ers' offense that is dealing with a plethora of injuries, and it could result in another marginally useful performance next week against the Chargers. Just keep in mind that his ceiling is pretty low.

Miller caught his only target and took it to the house for an eight-yard score in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.

Miller caught the only touchdown of the game, and then disappeared after the first-quarter score. He has shown a little play-making ability in the past, but with so many receiving options in San Francisco, Miller is nothing more than a safety valve for Colin Kaepernick at this point.

Miller caught all three of his targets for 40 yards in Sunday's win over Washington.

Miller saw increased usage with backup tight end Vance McDonald (hip) inactive Sunday. He could continue to see increased usage if McDonald is forced to miss additional time. The versatile fullback does a lot for the 49ers in a real football sense, but he won't warrant fantasy consideration even with the slightly increased usage.

49ers FB Bruce Miller (shoulder) is 100 percent.

49ers signed FB Bruce Miller to a three-year contract extension through 2017.

According to ESPN's Bill Williamson, the deal makes Miller one of the highest-paid fullbacks in the league. Miller was one of the league's best lead blockers in 2013, and also caught a career-high 25 passes. He's one of coach Jim Harbaugh's favorite players.

ESPN reports the 49ers have had "preliminary" extension talks with FB Bruce Miller.

One of the league's better lead blockers, Miller is going into the final year of his rookie contract. Also an able pass catcher, Miller is a favorite of coach Jim Harbaugh. Considering the vanishingly-little leverage held by any fullback, the sides should be able to come to an agreement.

49ers placed FB Bruce Miller on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Miller suffered the injury in Sunday's win over the Bucs. He'll now miss the rest of the regular season and won't be available for the playoffs. Miller had graded out as a top-four fullback by Pro Football Focus, so it's a significant loss to the 49ers' running game. DL/FB Will Tukuafu has been re-signed to replace him on the active roster.
