Jordan De Goey is set to miss the first game under Collingwood caretaker coach Robert Harvey after being offered a one-match ban for his high bump on Melbourne's Clayton Oliver.

De Goey ran through and clipped Oliver on the face with his shoulder as players contested a loose ball from a boundary throw-in.

The impact sent Oliver spinning to the turf.

Oliver was able to get up and take his kick, but the hit was clearly high and dangerous - the exact type of offence the AFL has been desperate to stamp out of the game.

De Goey made no attempt to pick up the ball.

The incident was assessed as careless conduct, medium impact, and high contact, resulting in a one-match ban.

If De Goey decides against challenging it, he will miss Collingwood's clash with Fremantle at Marvel Stadium next week.

It will be Harvey's first game as Collingwood caretaker coach following the exit of Nathan Buckley.

De Goey starred in the shock 17-point win over Melbourne, tallying 32 disposals and six clearances.

Hawthorn have opted against challenging James Worpel's one-game AFL suspension, meaning the ace midfielder will miss the Hawks' clash with Essendon in Tasmania on Sunday.

The 22-year-old was cited by the match review officer for a dangerous tackle on Sydney's Harry Cunningham during Hawthorn's upset of the Swans last Friday night.

The incident was graded and assessed as careless contact, medium impact and high contact.

Sydney youngster Sam Wicks accepted a one-game ban for his forceful front-on contact against Hawthorn's Will Day.

It is set to be a big week for the tribunal with Adelaide veteran David Mackay to face up for a contentious rough conduct charge against St Kilda's Hunter Clark.

The AFL's legal counsel will argue Mackay deserves a minimum three-match suspension for the incident which left Clark with a broken jaw during the Crows' comeback victory on Saturday night.
