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.”

NJ Advance Media contacted the Zoo Bar, but the person who answered the phone declined to comment.

According to ESPN’s Tim McManus, a suspect was arrested following the incident.

The Aberdeen Police Department provided no information on the incident when contacted by NJ Advance Media. A dispatch officer said the agency does not have an information officer and records requests will not be available until at least Monday.

Eagles cornerback Avonte Maddox, Goedert’s roommate last season and best friend on the team, weighed in on social media on Saturday.

“Yeah, lucky I wasn’t there,” Maddox tweeted. “Would have been some problems … ”

Goedert is entering his third season with the Eagles. He appeared in 15 games last season and produced 58 catches for 607 yards and five touchdowns. Goedert played 66.15 percent of the Eagles’ offensive snaps last season, as he teamed with Zach Ertz to form one of the most productive tight end tandems in the NFL.

The 25-year-old will be eligible for a contract extension following this season.

The Eagles selected Goedert in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He played college football at South Dakota State, and he is a native of Britton, S.D.
