SANTA CLARA — Fullback Bruce Miller is expected to miss the remainder of the regular season and the playoffs with a left shoulder blade injury sustained during Sunday's win at Tampa Bay.

Former Stanford fullback Owen Marecic was expected at team headquarters to undergo a physical and conditioning test with the intent of re-signing him to help fill the void if all goes well during the visit. Marecic spent a stint with the team from Sept. 17 to Oct. 2.

After Sunday's 33-14 victory, Miller had a tough time using the arm. He took a hard hit from Buccaneers safety Keith Tandy after a 10-yard catch in the fourth quarter.

Miller has been a key blocker for Frank Gore and has 25 catches for 243 yards for the 49ers (10-4).
