Goedert was at the restaurant with his family when he was allegedly sucker-punched unprovoked, the person said. He was evaluated at a hospital as a precaution.
NJ Advance Media contacted the Eagles, who said they are aware of the situation but declined to comment.
According to the Mitchell Republic, the incident occurred at the Zoo Bar in Aberdeen, South Dakota, around 1 a.m. Police were called to the scene because of reports that “people [were] busting glasses and have busted heads.”
The video shows Goedert talking with a man face-to-face at the restaurant before a second man comes from out of nowhere to punch the Eagles tight end in the face.
