Video shows Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert appearing to be attacked without provocation in an incident at a South Dakota restaurant on Friday.

The brief video shows Goedert appearing to be asking a man to back away from him when a second man comes out of nowhere and delivers a hard punch to Goedert’s face, knocking him to the ground. A short skirmish ensues in which other men are knocked to the ground and a woman attempts to protect Goedert from being further injured.

Although Goedert lay motionless after he was knocked down and appeared to be unconscious, he was reportedly not seriously injured.

Goedert is a South Dakota native and played his college football at South Dakota State.

Police were called to the scene and one person was reportedly arrested.

  1. Any more video because it looked like he was in the middle of an altercation pushing a guy back before he got punched. P.s I’m not condoning the punch atall!

  2. Illegal blow to the head…he was already engaged with another player…

    Seriously…that is assault. The first guy is in his face and the other guy sucker-punched him. That guy is in jail, justifiably so.

  3. hey he is a really nice guy for this to happen to him – we lived not far from his family

  4. Small town stuff. I grew up in this environment. I bet dollars to donuts that they just wanted to brag later they knocked him out. They will soon find out that this isn’t just your average small town bruhaha when lawyers get involved because his physical well being is his living.

  5. How about this one…the guy that sucker punched this guy, and Goedert get into the ring so the sucker puncher can get his ass kicked really good?

  6. Looks like a really classy establishment. Maybe next time they’ll go somewhere where a jacket is required and doesn’t allow a bunch of people running around with backwards baseball caps.

  7. Had a smaller guy by the collar with his fist balled up ready to hit him and someone Goerdert’s size came to the much smaller guy’s rescue! Typical out of big bad football players, always wanting to fight guys half their size, got want he deserved!

    … or… the guy who knocked Joe Dirt out cold
    puts him in a Peruvian necktie and chokes him out cold (AGAIN).

    Agree entirely, but isn’t almost everyone’s physical well being important to making their living? I know mine is. And no, I’m not an NFL player. I do toss the pigskin around occasionally at a BBQ though!

  10. I don’t care what happened prior to that, that is a punk move to hit a man when you aren’t squared up. Enjoy your impending charges, buddy. Hope it was worth everything coming your way.

  11. Boy, that video is something else. That is the definition of a sucker punch. Goedert is fortunate to be alive or not seriously injured.

  12. That place has to be where the TOOTHBRUSH was invented ,because if it was anywhere else it would have been called the TEETHBRUSH !

  13. Dallas is fortunately not a vegetable the perp who cowardly attacked him will be dealt with by our legal system, God and very upset eagle fans if his name is ever released publicly

  14. 1) No clue what happened before footage started, but that was a cheap hit.

    2) Given the daily stories on players in various sports testing positive for COVID, not sure now is the best time for Friday night brofests at the bar.

    Goedert was clearly trying to break it up. Hes 6’5 260 lbs. If he wanted to start dropping guys, I’m sure he easily could have. That was a sucker punch that wasn’t necessary. Zeke is more aggressive with his women than goedert was here.

    ______________

    If Goedert is 6’5” 265, the guy that punched him looked 6’7” 275

  17. “Unprovoked” seems a stretch. It was definitely a cheap shot, and the situation looked as though it may not have escalated that far without said cheap shot. But there was something going on there that lead up to that punch. The video doesn’t show it all. Not saying the cheap shot guy doesn’t deserve whatever he gets, but Goedtert has his hand on another guy prior to the sucker punch.

  18. Dallas was picking on a smaller dude. A bigger dude that was the buddy of the samller dude did not like that. The bigger dude got mad and lit up Dallas. Dallas went to sleep. Moral of the story…..when getting involved in a bar fight make sure to keep your head on a swivel or your head will get swiveled.

    This guys will battle concussions the rest of his football career. You dont take one like that and come out of it without a higher risk for concussions
