Melbourne's Jack Trengove is facing a two-match ban after being charged by the AFL's Match Review Panel for his heavy tackle on Patrick Dangerfield.

Adelaide's star youngster Dangerfield was forced off in the third quarter of Sunday's match at the MCG with concussion after having his head crash into the ground in a fierce tackle from Trengove.

Trengove has been charged with a level-three rough-conduct offence.

The incident was assessed as negligent conduct, high impact and high contact.

The penalty of 325 demerit points and a three-match sanction can be reduced to by 25 per cent to 243.75 points and a two-match sanction with an early plea.

Sydney's Ted Richards faces a one-match ban with an early plea for a level-two wrestling offence against Western Bulldogs' Lindsay Gilbee.

Port Adelaide's Jay Schulz can accept a $900 sanction for wrestling with Hawthorn's Rick Ladson.

Brisbane's Jack Redden has been charged with a level-two tripping offence against Gold Coast's Gary Ablett.

Redden can accept a reprimand and 93.75 points towards his future record with an early plea.

Fremantle's Nathan Fyfe has been charged with a second offence for making negligent contact with an umpire and can accept an $1800 sanction with an early plea.

Essendon's Nathan Lovett-Murray has been charged with a first offence for making negligent contact with an umpire and can accept a $900 sanction with an early plea.

Essendon's Kyle Reimers had his match-day report for tripping West Coast's Sam Butler withdrawn on Monday after the panel found force was not sufficient to be a reportable offence.

Contact between West Coast's Mark Nicoski and Essendon's Heath Hocking from the fourth quarter of Sunday's game at Etihad Stadium was judged to be below the force required to be a reportable offence.

David Swallow's high contact with Brisbane's Andrew Raines was deemed to be a legitimate spoiling attempt and no report was made against the Gold Coast player.
