Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Josh Sills has been indicted by a Guernsey County (Ohio) Common Pleas Court grand jury on one count of rape and one count of kidnapping, both first-degree felonies.
According to a release, Sills engaged in sexual activity that was not consensual and held a victim against her will in December 2019.
The NFL said on Wednesday that Sills has been placed on the commissioner's exempt list and is not permitted to participate in practices or games or travel with the Eagles while on the list. The league also said that "the matter will be reviewed under the NFL's personal conduct policy."
The Eagles said in a statement they are "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 appeared in one game for the Eagles this season.
