Collingwood ruckman Brodie Grundy has been charged for striking Geelong superstar Patrick Dangerfield in the opening quarter of the Magpies' 10-point qualifying final win on Friday night.
Grundy can accept at $2000 fine with an early guilty plea.
Match Review Officer Michael Christian assessed the incident as intentional conduct with low impact and body contact.
While the big man is free to play in the Pies' preliminary final, Jordan De Goey (right hamstring) and Levi Greenwood (left knee) have both been ruled out of that clash.
While Greenwood won't feature again this year, De Goey remains a chance to play if Collingwood wins through to the decider.
