The Company Guard dropped all charges against alleged fraudster Melissa Caddick more than five weeks after washing her foot on the south coast of New South Wales

Sam Reid of Greater Western Sydney faces a two-game suspension over a bump against Fremantle captain Nat Fyfe that worried the two-time Brownlow medalist

Fyfe played as a permanent striker when he hit Reid from head to head in the Dockers 31-point win over the Giants on Sunday

Match Review Officer Michael Christian classified the incident as negligent, high impact, and high behavior and Reid was offered a two-game penalty if he pleads guilty

Under the AFL’s new concussion guidelines, Fyfe was automatically banned from Dockers’ third game against Carlton in Docklands on Sunday

And given his history of concussions, Fyfe is no guarantee he’ll make it back to the quarter-finals against Hawthorn

Meanwhile, the winless Essendon has lost key trio Dylan Shiel, Sam Draper and Jye Caldwell for at least the next six weeks of the season

All three were injured in the bombers’ loss to Port Adelaide on Saturday Ruckman Draper missed up to 10 games with an ankle injury

Caldwell has been suspended for six to eight games with a hamstring tear, while Shiel will be out for at least six weeks with a knee injury
