Carlton young gun Patrick Cripps remains eligible for the Brownlow Medal, but star teammate Charlie Curnow has been slapped with an AFL ban.
On Monday, AFL match review officer Michael Christian cleared Cripps of any wrongdoing in a tackle that concussed Gold Coast's David Swallow.
Curnow can accept a one-game suspension for striking Suns co-captain Steven May, who himself faces a one-game ban for rough conduct against Ed Curnow.
"The first thing to note here is that whilst Patrick Cripps wraps his right arm around David Swallow, his left arm is actually trying to contest the ball," Christian said.
"So his arms weren't pinned. Then the question was 'Did he drive Swallow into the ground with excessive force?' We didn't believe that was the case.
"He got to the side of Swallow, both players actually got hands down to try and break their fall, it was just an unfortunate accident.
"... We didn't believe the tackle by Cripps was of a dangerous nature."
The young Blue is the second player in betting markets for the Brownlow behind hot favourite Tom Mitchell of Hawthorn.
Adelaide's Kyle Cheney was the only other player offered a suspension on Monday.
The defender is set to miss their must-win Showdown against Port Adelaide after being offered a one-game ban for rough conduct on Melbourne's Bayley Fritsch.
Brisbane's Mitch Robinson, Port Adelaide's Tom Rockliff and West Coast's Willie Rioli can all accept fines, while the Power's Steven Motlop can accept two fines for misconduct.
