CAMBRIDGE, Ohio (WJW) — A player for the Super Bowl-bound Philadelphia Eagles has been indicted in Ohio on rape and kidnapping charges.

It’s now expected he won’t be appear for the game, per NFL policy.

According to a release from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, Joshua Matthew Sills, 25, of Sarahsville, was indicted by a Guernsey County Common Pleas Court grand jury on a count of rape and a count of kidnapping, both first-degree felonies.

Later Wednesday, Sills was placed on the NFL Commissioner Exempt List, as first reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. That means Sills won’t be able to practice, play or travel with the team.

Players can be placed on the list if they are formally charged with crimes of violence, including sexual assault, according to NFL policy. Though they aren’t allowed to play or practice, they may still be allowed to be at the team’s facility for meetings or training.

Sills is an offensive guard for the Eagles.

The indictment states that in December 2019, Sills engaged in sexual activity that was not consensual and held a victim against her will. The crime was immediately reported, and the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office conducted a detailed investigation.

Sills’ attorney, Michael Connick, told the Associated Press the allegations are false and that Sills will be aggressively defended.

The case is being prosecuted by the Special Prosecutions Section of the Attorney General’s Office.

Sills was issued a summons to appear in court at 1 p.m. on Feb. 16. That’s four days after the Super Bowl.

Fox 8 has reached out to the Eagles for comment. They responded.

Statement from the Philadelphia Eagles:

“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.”
