Adelaide was still unsure on the extent of the damage to Michael Doughty's face as Fremantle forward Jeff Farmer was sent to the AFL tribunal.

Farmer was booked on video evidence for rough play after he kneed Doughty in the head during the second quarter of Saturday night's match at AAMI Stadium.

Kangaroos Brady Rawlings and Brent Harvey were also booked on video evidence, but a striking charge against veteran team-mate Glenn Archer was withdrawn.

Farmer, Rawlings and Harvey will face the tribunal on Tuesday night.

"The signs are that hopefully it's not as bad as first thought, but any facial injury's a pretty serious injury," Crows assistant coach Peter Curran said of Doughty.

Adelaide hopes Doughty will be available for this weekend, but he could miss a month depending on the results of medical scans.

Results of the tests will be known on Tuesday.

Rawlings was reported for striking Carlton's Scott Camporeale, while Harvey was booked for striking Blues youngster Justin Davies during Saturday's game at Optus Oval.

Archer was booked during the match for striking Camporeale and that charge was withdrawn.

Meanwhile, Melbourne said it wanted more training at Telstra Dome as the venue continued to wear renewed controversy over the state of its surface.
