A grand jury has indicted Eagles guard Josh Sills on kidnapping and rape charges, Ohio prosecutors announced on Wednesday.
According to the Ohio Attorney General’s press release and indictment, the man, who is from Sarahsville, Ohio, allegedly held and raped a woman “against her will” in December 2019. The grand jury recommended two first-degree felonies — one charge each kidnapping and rape.
Sills was ordered to appear in court on February 16.
The attorney general’s office added that the incident was “promptly reported” and that the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office conducted a “detailed investigation”.
The NFL put Sills on the exempt player list, which means he is not allowed to train or travel to games with the team. The league also said the situation would be reviewed under its personal conduct guidelines.
News of the allegations against Sills came three days after the Eagles defeated the 49ers in the NFC championship game to secure a spot in Super Bowl LVII, where they will face the Kansas City Chiefs on February 12. The Eagles have yet to publicly comment on Sill’s case.
Sills has already played one game for Philadelphia this season. He joined the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2022 after playing at varsity in West Virginia and Oklahoma State.
