Sydney Swans player Luke Parker has been referred to the Tribunal by the VFL's Match Review Panel for rough conduct.

Parker's bump on opponent Josh Smith during the second term of last Friday's VFL match left the Frankson player with facial fractures and a concussion, with Smith not returning to the game and was sent to hospital as a result of the collision.

The incident has led to Parker facing an extended period on the sidelines, with the competition's MRP charging Parker with rough conduct.

The MRP has graded Parker's actions as careless conduct, severe impact and high contact, resulting in a 4+ game ban.

That ban will mean Parker will be unavailable for selection at AFL level until Round 15 at the soonest, with the veteran Swan to miss upcoming games against the Western Bulldogs, Geelong, Adelaide and potentially GWS.

Parker will equally miss as many matches in the VFL, with Sydney's next game scheduled for Friday night against the Northern Bullants.

The ban will also mean Parker's first game at the top level has been delayed, with the former Sydney captain having not appeared in John Longmire's side due to a recent arm injury and the form of the Swans' current senior side.

Parker has played the past four weeks in the VFL for the Swans' reserves, with his good form remaining to go unrewarded.

A three-time Bob Skilton Medal winner, Parker has played 283 games in the red and white since joining the Swans in 2010.
