Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert was sucker-punched while out to dinner with his family, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports and a PFT source confirms.

Goedert, 25, was uninjured.

He was at a South Dakota restaurant on Friday when, unprovoked, someone punched him in the face. Goedert was checked out at a local hospital as a precaution.

No other details about the incident are known right now.

Goedert grew up in South Dakota and attended South Dakota State before the Eagles drafted him in the second round in 2018.

He has 91 catches for 941 yards and nine touchdowns in 31 games over two seasons.

  1. Nothing tougher than a guy who knows he could beat the hell out of you but chooses to turn the other cheek and be the bigger person.

    Kudos to you sir.

  2. Keep it on the field!

    Rather than press for assault. Have the judge rule that the puncher has to participate in 1 Eagles practice.

    Then, he will understand… many new things.

  3. Takes a real tough guy to throw a sucker punch, been there.. From a bison fan, hope u clean his clock some day Dallas..

  4. I think he threw the salt shaker over his shoulder for good luck this season.

  7. SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert appears to have been caught up in an early morning bar brawl in Aberdeen on Saturday, the American News has confirmed.

    Police were called to The Zoo Bar in Aberdeen just after 1 a.m. on a report of “people busting glasses and have busted heads,” according to archived local police scanner traffic reviewed by Forum News Service.

    Police radioed in shortly after from the scene to run Goedert’s ID, and those of two other men. The 6 foot-5 inch, 265-pound Goedert is from Britton, about a 60-mile drive from Aberdeen.

    An ambulance was called for what was identified as a 24-year-old male who was unconscious but breathing, and the vehicle was soon headed to Avera St. Luke’s Hospital in Aberdeen. It’s unclear if the man was Goedert, who turned 25 in January. An Avera Health representative said no patient by Goedert’s name was at the Aberdeen hospital or its sister facility in Sioux Falls.

    Aberdeen police later were checking local hotels for “a group that flew in from Florida,” with a rental car with plates from Sioux Falls, according to police scanner traffic.

    Rumors swirled online that Goedert had been sucker punched and knocked out at the bar and then was airlifted to Sioux Falls, but Forum News Service was unable to immediately confirm any of those details.

    But according to a report by Mike Kaye of NJ Advance Media on NJ.com, quoting an unnamed source, Goedert was out with his family for dinner when he was “allegedly sucker-punched unprovoked” and taken to a local hospital as a precaution, but was said to be fine.

    Aberdeen Police Sgt. Dan Kaiser said nobody from the department would be available to comment on the incident until Monday morning. Chase Callahan, an agent with Rep1 Sports, which represents Goedert, didn’t immediately respond to an email and text request for comment.

    Goedert joined the Eagles as a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft after gaining notice as a standout athlete at Britton-Hecla High School and later in a star-studded career as a tight end for the South Dakota State University Jackrabbits in Brookings.

  8. So according to your sources this dude was sucker punched at a restaurant in South Dakota? Never knew South Dakota was such a tough place.

  9. This is the world the “defund the police” and “disband the police” idiots are searching for. Can’t wait. Too hard to just obey the law, so we need to get rid of the law

    If he retaliates he’s probably getting sued, which is probably what the other guy wanted in the first place. People are the worst.

  11. SD can be tough. Goedert is as tough as they come. Sounds like the perps got lucky.

  12. When a guy is sucker punched “out of the blue” by another man in a public place… The betting odds usually favor “something” to do with a woman.

  13. He’s probably totally innocent because people just go around sucker punching others for no apparent reason.

  14. I was like wth until I read the part about him growing up in South Dakota. Makes sense if they knew him, otherwise I’m thinking who the heck in South Dakota is recognizing Dallas Goedert.

  15. There are only like 8 people living in South Dakota. What are the odds?

    Now if you told me a buffalo sucker punched him, now that makes more sense.

  16. Lost in all this is that he was somehow able to do it while maintaining social distance.
