Goedert is uninjured after being sucker punched at a restaurant in South Dakota on Friday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
The 25-year-old was apparently out to eat with his family when he was punched unprovoked. Goedert made a precautionary trip to the hospital, but he checked out fine and was granted his release. The 2018 second-round pick had 607 receiving yards and five touchdowns last year, and he's poised to work behind Zach Ertz as Philadelphia's secondary tight end again in 2020.
Goedert secured seven of eight targets for 73 yards in the Eagles' 17-9 wild-card loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.
Goedert unsurprisingly served as the leader of the pass-catching corps in receptions, receiving yards and targets, even with Zach Ertz (ribs/kidney) active for the contest. Goedert made an exponential leap in his second pro season, finishing with a 58-607-5 line across 15 games during the regular season in addition to Sunday's production. The 25-year-old managed to avoid peaks and valleys for the most part as well, notching at least three grabs in each of the last 11 games of the campaign. He'll now enter the offseason with an eye on making an even bigger impact in 2020, although that could prove challenging as long as Ertz is around and healthy.
Goedert caught four of 10 targets for 65 yards in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Giants.
As expected with Zach Ertz (ribs) sidelined, Goedert was Carson Wentz's favorite option in the passing game, but the second-year tight end wasn't able to turn that volume into a particularly impressive performance. He's still seen double-digit targets in back-to-back games, and if Ertz remains out -- or even just less than 100 percent -- for next weekend's wild-card game against the Seahawks, Goedert figures to see a heavy workload once again.
Goedert will operate as the Eagles' top tight end Sunday against the Giants with Zach Ertz (ribs) ruled out for the game, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.
Goedert has already been handling a three-down role, with injuries at receiver forcing the Eagles to rely on multi-tight end formations nearly every week. The second-year player is working on a six-game streak with six or more targets, culminating in a 9-91-1 receiving line in last week's 17-9 win over the Cowboys. Goedert is locked in as a central figure in the Eagles' passing game and could push for double-digit targets again with Ertz temporarily out of the picture.
Goedert caught nine of 12 targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Cowboys.
Zach Ertz missed most of the first half due to injured ribs, but the Eagles' passing game didn't miss a beat with Goedert taking his place as Carson Wentz's most trusted option. The second-year tight end is having a solid finish to the campaign, catching 33 of 45 targets for 321 yards and two TDs over the last six games, and he could see another elevated workload in Week 17 if Ertz is less than 100 percent.
Goedert caught five of six targets for 55 yards in Sunday's 37-27 win over the Redskins.
Philadelphia's backup tight end continues to play a sizable role in the offense with all of the team's injuries at the wide receiver position. Goedert has now totaled at least three receptions in each of his past nine games, and this was his third time topping 50 yards in that stretch.
Goedert caught three of his six targets for 41 yards in Monday night's 23-17 win over the Giants.
The tight end didn't make his first catch until the final drive of the first half and surprisingly didn't get much more involved after Alshon Jeffery was ruled out of the remainder of the game with a foot injury. Goedert did contribute to the victory, however, as his 28-yard catch in the fourth quarter helped set up the game-tying touchdown. He's now seen at least six targets in four straight games, but his red-zone involvement continues to be hit-and-miss heading into a Week 15 matchup with Washington.
Goedert caught six of seven targets for 66 yards during Sunday's 37-31 loss to the Dolphins.
On a day in which Philadelphia's passing attack racked up 310 yards and three scores against the Miami secondary, Goedert ranked second on the team in targets and was one of two Eagles to exceed 45 receiving yards. The second-year tight end was actually Carson Wentz's preferred target at the position in Week 13, and he has now surpassed Zach Ertz in target share over two of the Eagles' past four games. Goedert has 13 catches for 98 yards over Philadelphia's past two outings, heading into a Week 14 matchup against a Giants defense that so far this season has surrendered the fewest number of receptions (39) to opposing tight ends.
Goedert caught seven of his eight targets for 32 yards in Sunday's loss to Seattle.
It was expected that Goedert would be one of the primary beneficiaries with Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) both out. The second-year tight end came in second on the team in targets and catches behind only Zach Ertz. While the 24-year-old set a season high in catches, it unfortunately didn't translate to many yards. Goedert will be a touchdown-dependent play Week 13 against Miami.
Goedert caught three of six targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Patriots.
The Eagles' No. 2 tight end has carved out a consistent role for himself, finding the end zone in three of the last four games and catching at least three passes in five straight. Goedert's production has remained steady even with Zach Ertz having a couple of huge performances in the last two weeks, which bodes well for the second-year player heading into Week 12's clash with a Seattle defense that has struggled to cover TEs all year.
Goedert caught four of his five targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 22-14 win over the Bears.
Goedert was the team's second-leading receiver on the day, but unfortunately for him, it came behind a 100-yard bounce-back effort from Zach Ertz. The 24-year-old played all 70 snaps on offense, however, boding well for his continual viability as a fantasy starter in a barren tight-end landscape. With DeSean Jackson looking at an extended absence due to a recurrence of his abdominal injury, the Eagles likely will keep relying on two-tight-end sets after their Week 10 bye, so Goedert still should see consistent chances to produce.
Goedert secured three of five targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-13 win over Buffalo.
Goedert finished with more yards than fellow tight end Zach Ertz for the second straight week, and Philadelphia's No. 2 tight end has found the end zone in both games to boot. While this run has worked Goedert into the low-end TE1 range, make no mistake that Ertz is still the Eagles tight end to own. It wouldn't be surprising to see Ertz pick up the pace at Goedert's expense moving forward, starting with Week 9 against the Bears.
Goedert (undisclosed) had to leave Sunday's contest early, but promptly re-entered the game and finished with four receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown in a 37-10 loss to Dallas.
The Eagles' second dynamic tight end suffered an injury scare in the early going, but he only missed a few plays before coming back to post his best stat line of the season. Goedert led all Philadelphia receivers in receptions, yards and touchdowns for the first time in his career. The 24-year-old had been a non-factor early in the year, but he has been coming on strong with nine receptions, 117 yards and Sunday's touchdown over his last two contests. Zach Ertz remains the top tight end in this passing attack, but coach Doug Pederson may be trending toward more formations with two tight ends to aid a wide receiving corps that has taken a beating this season. It's too early to give Goedert a high fantasy floor so long as Ertz is healthy, so expectations should be kept in check heading into Sunday's road matchup against the Bills.
Goedert (undisclosed) was able to return on Philadelphia's second drive after going into the medical tent on the first, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.
Goedert didn't need to miss a single offensive snap, as he was quickly cleared of whatever injury he suffered on his fumble.
Goedert had to go to the medical tent with an undisclosed injury in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.
To add insult to injury, Goedert also fumbled on the play to set Dallas up in Eagles territory. Further word on his status should surface before long.
Goedert caught five of his eight targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Vikings.
Goedert finished third on the team in targets and receiving yards. He made two catches on the Eagles' first touchdown drive of the day and was the intended target on both of the team's interceptions in the contest, including Jake Elliott's fake field-goal attempt at the end of the first half. The 24-year-old tight end more than doubled his receiving yards on the year with the effort and will look to sustain a greater role in the offense Week 7 at Dallas.
Goedert caught one of three targets for 11 yards during Sunday's 31-6 win over the Jets.
Goedert got in on the action late in the first quarter with an 11-yard reception. He had a second short reception called back due to penalty but was not targeted after Philadelphia's first drive of the second half. The former second-round pick had been dealing with a calf issue since training camp and has yet to find a groove with just one score on the season. He also has yet to reach 20 yards in a game. Minnesota's sixth-ranked pass defense will provide a tough hurdle for him to clear.
Goedert brought in two of three targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' 34-27 win over the Packers on Thursday.
Goedert corralled a three-yard scoring toss with 2:45 left in the second quarter to erase a 13-7 deficit. The second-year tight end has recently been affected by a calf injury, but he battled through across two games in five days and will now have a chance at an extended layoff ahead of a Week 5 interconference battle against the Jets.
Goedert played just nine snaps in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Lions.
Goedert returned in an ever-so-limited capacity after missing the week prior with a calf injury. He saw just one target in the affair. Assuming he makes it through the week without setbacks, the 24-year-old will hopefully see the field more Thursday at Green Bay.
Goedert (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.
After putting in a pregame workout, Goedert has been deemed ready to return from a one-game absence. It'll be interesting to see what kind of workload he'll be able to handle on his recovering left calf, but in the end, the presence of No. 1 tight end Zach Ertz hinders Goedert's potential to produce.
