South Sydney winger Andrew Everingham faces up to three weeks on the NRL sidelines for a shoulder charge on North Queensland fullback Matt Bowen.
The NRL match review committee on Monday hit Everingham with a grade-two offence over an incident in the second half of the Rabbitohs' 28-10 win over the Cowboys on Friday night.
Bowen appeared to be collected late, but the apparent shoulder charge was not reported on the field at the time.
One of four players charged from round-nine action, Everingham will miss two weeks if he enters an early guilty plea but risks another week should he contest the charge and lose.
Brisbane forward Josh McGuire and Parramatta's Darcy Lussick were both charged with striking following a 48th-minute brawl at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.
But McGuire, who was sin-binned for punching Mitchell Allgood, could be free to play Friday night's derby against Gold Coast if he takes an early guilty plea.
Lussick, who has 60 carryover points, can plead guilty and miss one game or contest the charge and be out for two matches if unsuccessful.
The other player charged was Penrith's Mose Masoe, who can play this weekend with an early guilty plea to a grade-one charge of attacking the head or neck of Melbourne forward Jason Ryles during the Panthers' upset 12-10 win on Sunday.
