The NFL said Sills was placed on the Commissioner Exempt List and added, "Sills may not participate in practices and games or travel with the team while on the Commissioner Exempt List. The matter will be reviewed under the NFL’s personal conduct policy."
In a statement obtained by the NFL, the Philadelphia Eagles said, "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 reportedly played in one game this season, which the Eagles won against the Arizona Cardinals. Before his NFL career, Sills, a Sarahsville, Ohio, native, played college football at West Virginia and Oklahoma State.
