Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert is "fine" after getting sucker punched at a restaurant, ESPN reports.

Mitchell Republic has more details on the incident:

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.
