Brisbane's Charlie Cameron will await the AFL Match Review Officer's findings from Thursday's action following a dangerous tackle on Melbourne's Jake Lever.

The first-quarter incident involving the two former Adelaide teammates saw Cameron penalised with a free-kick for a dangerous tackle, with the small forward lifting Lever off the ground and rotating him into the ground with one arm pinned.

While Lever's left arm was able to brace for contact with the turf, the premiership Demon's head also made contact with the ground at some force, likely garnering a 'high contact' grading for any rough conduct dangerous tackle offence against Cameron.

The level of impact would likely decide whether Cameron is hit with a fine or suspension, with a grading of 'medium' or higher leading to the latter.

The MRO would only need to see Cameron's actions as 'inherently dangerous' to justify a charge, while Lever's vulnerability and the rotation of the tackle will also work against Cameron.

While Lever was not hurt in the aftermath of the tackle, the potential to cause further damage will be considered.

The MRO's potential gradings of careless conduct, medium impact and high contact would result in a one-game suspension for Cameron, who is scheduled to face Geelong at the Gabba next Saturday.

A 'low' impact grade would result in a fine.

If suspended, Cameron would miss his first AFL game since 2018 - ending a 123-game run of consecutive matches played for the two-time All-Australian.

Only Collingwood veteran Jack Crisp (219 games) and Melbourne's Christian Petracca (138) currently hold longer active match streaks.

The MRO will release their findings from Thursday's match between Brisbane and Melbourne on Friday evening.
