The Tennessean is reporting that current Titans and former LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger was punched in the face at a Nashville Bar Sunday night. A presumed Bama fan yelled “Roll Tide” and his friend punched Mettenberger when he turned around.
“Here’s the truth: The guy said something about ‘Roll Tide!’ to Zach, and Zach turned around and said ‘Good luck with that,’ ” Ford said on Monday. “And the guy’s buddy then sucker-punched Zach.
“I promise you that Mettenberger did not throw a punch. He didn’t do anything. The guy sucker-punched him in the eye, that’s the bottom line, and the guy that punched him started running out the door. My door guys had to chase him down.”
Mettenberger was not hurt. Taylor Lewan was also at the bar.
UPDATE: Mettenberger has a “loose tooth” per Outkick the Coverage.
