Fremantle midfielder Dean Solomon will be one of three players to front the AFL Tribunal on Tuesday night.

Solomon's strike on Cameron Ling, which left the Cats tagger with a fractured cheekbone, incurred nine activation points and was referred straight to he tribunal, ruling out the option of him taking an early guilty plea.

He could incur a ban of seven matches or more, which would end his season.

Solomon's teammate Ryan Crowley will challenge a one-match ban after he was charged with striking Geelong's Brownlow Medal favourite Gary Ablett during Saturday's spiteful clash at Skilled Stadium.

And North Melbourne defender Daniel Pratt will risk a three-match suspension by challenging a misconduct charge for making contact to the face of Port Adelaide forward Brett Ebert.

Pratt could have accepted a two-match sanction with an early guilty plea.

Sydney utility Amon Buchanan will miss the Swans' next four matches after accepting a four-match sanction for engaging in rough conduct offence against Hawthorn's Luke Hodge.

West Coast dynamo Daniel Kerr announced on Tuesday night that he will accept a three-match ban for striking Richmond's Matt White.

Adelaide's Richard Douglas was fined $1,950 sanction for making negligent contact with umpire Stephen McBurney in the loss to Collingwood.

Melbourne forward Colin Sylvia accepted a reprimand and 93.75 points to his future record for striking Dale Morris from the Western Bulldogs.
