An Eagles player is currently exempt from practice
A Philadelphia Eagles player is on the commissioner’s exempt list Wednesday. The Eagles are preparing for a Super Bowl game in just 11 days. Reports came out early Wednesday morning that offensive lineman Josh Sills was indicted on rape and kidnapping charges.
According to Mike Garafolo with the NFL Network, the NFL placed Sills on the commissioner’s exempt list. That means he cannot practice or play in the game with this status. Sills cannot travel with the Eagles to Phoenix for Super Bowl LVII while he’s on the list.
NFL placed #Eagles’ Josh Sills on the commissioner’s exempt list following today’s indictment by a grand jury in Ohio. Sills may not participate in practices and games or travel with the team while on the list. The matter will be reviewed under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

Sills has not played a snap of offense yet for the Eagles. However, the Eagles had used the undrafted rookie free agent for practices this season. He also provided an answer at offensive line depth for the Eagles on the offensive line should someone go down in the playoffs. It appears he won’t be eligible for the Super Bowl after the recent indictment.
