Carlton's Jordan Boyd and Adelaide's Josh Rachele have received their Match Review fates following separate incidents on Saturday.

Boyd has been referred directly to the AFL Tribunal by the Match Review Officer, while Rachele can accept a two-game suspension.

Boyd is facing a minimum three-game suspension for committing a dangerous tackle on Port Adelaide's Darcy Byrne-Jones during the Blues' belting of the Power at Marvel Stadium.

The Carlton utility appeared to pin both of Byrne-Jones' arms before tackling him to the ground, with the Port Adelaide defender's head making contact with the turf. A free kick was paid against Boyd for the action.

Byrne-Jones was substituted out of Saturday's contest due to a concussion stemming from Boyd's tackle, with the MRO grading the incident as careless conduct, severe impact and high contact. Due to the AFL's concussion protocols, the Power defender will automatically miss next week's blockbuster clash with Collingwood at Adelaide Oval.

Carlton are scheduled to face West Coast, Collingwood and St Kilda in their upcoming three matches.

Crows forward Rachele, meanwhile, received a two-game ban following a striking charge he received during Saturday night's loss to GWS.

During the second quarter of action at Adelaide Oval, Rachele remonstrated with GWS' Harry Perryman after the Giant appeared to make high contact with the Crows forward.

Rachele slung Perryman to the ground and shoved him for good measure, leading to GWS defender Jack Buckley's intervention. Buckley didn't get very far, though, as Rachele swung at the Giant in what conveyed a punching action.

The incident compelled the adjudicating umpire to enforce a 50-metre penalty against Rachele, as well as place the second-year Crow on report for striking.

Rachele was the subject of close attention by the Giants on Saturday night, finding himself in the middle of numerous physical contests throughout the narrow loss.

The MRO graded Rachele's actions as intentional conduct, medium impact and high contact, resulting in a two-game ban.

Adelaide is scheduled to play Melbourne at the MCG next week before a meeting with arch rivals Port Adelaide.

Rachele can also accept a $1000 fine (with a plea) for engaging in a melee and another $1000 fine (with a plea) for misconduct from Saturday's game.

Meanwhile, Essendon's Zach Merrett (staging, $1000 with plea) and Giant Harry Perryman (engaging in melee, $1000 with plea) were also hit with fines.
