ADELAIDE gun Izak Rankine has avoided a suspension for his tackle on Jye Caldwell in the Crows' loss to Essendon on Friday night.

Caldwell was awarded a free kick for a dangerous tackle by Rankine during the Bombers' three-point victory at Adelaide Oval.

The Match Review Officer (MRO) graded the incident as careless conduct, low impact and high contact, meaning Rankine can accept a $2,500 fine with an early plea.

Crows defender Mark Keane can accept a $2,500 fine for tripping, while captain Jordan Dawson can accept a $1,875 fine for making careless contact with an umpire.
