Last night Mike Kaye, an Eagles beat reporter for NJ.com, reported Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert had been involved in an altercation in a restaurant, being “sucker punched” by a patron at the establishment.
The young tight end was uninjured and the punch was described by Kaye as “unprovoked,” but details were spotty.
Per source, #Eagles TE Dallas Goedert was with family at a restaurant last night and was sucker punched unprovoked. He was taken to the hospital for evaluation and is fine.

Today, Adam Schefter, via Twitter user @SamStompy, tweeted out the surveillance video of the incident and “GOD DAMN” just about perfectly sums up what happened.

CRIPES. Goedert looks like he’s completely knocked out cold from the punch. Schefter reported the incident took place at the Zoo Bar in Aberdeen, S.D.
Maybe it’s not the best idea to be out a bar without a mask and trying to break up fights when you’re a professional athlete, but what do I know?
It doesn’t look as if the Eagles have commented on the incident as of yet.
