Sills indicted by a Guernsey County Common Pleas Court Grand Jury
Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Josh Sills has been indicted on one count of rape and kidnapping, according to ESPN’s Tim McManus.
“In December 2019, the indictment says, Sills engaged in sexual activity that was not consensual and held a victim against her will,” the Ohio Attorney General‘s office said in a statement on Wednesday. “The crime was immediately reported, and the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office conducted a detailed investigation.”
“Sills was issued a summons to appear in Guernsey County Common Pleas Court at 1 p.m. on Feb. 16,” the release said.
The NFL has made comments on Sills and position with the Philadelphia Eagles going further. The league said, “Sills has been placed on the Commissioner Exempt List, which means for now he may not participate in practices and games or travel with the team. The matter will be reviewed under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.”
As a result, the Philadelphia Eagles have released on a statement on Sills and what they’re doing moving forward.
“The organization is aware of the legal matter involving Josh Sills. We have been in communication with the league office and are in the process of gathering more information. We have no further comment at this time.”
Sills was signed as an unrestricted free agent in 2022 by the Eagles. He played college at West Virginia and Oklahoma State. He has only played four snaps for the Eagles this season. All four were on special teams in a week five win against the Arizona Cardinals. Sills has been inactive for all postseason games this season.
The Eagles are playing the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 6:30 p.m.
