GREATER Western Sydney forward Jeremy Cameron has been cleared of a broken arm but may still be sidelined this week after being charged with rough conduct.
He injured his left arm in the second-quarter incident and was cited by the Match Review Panel for engaging in rough conduct against the two-time Hawthorn premiership forward.
Carry-over points mean Cameron's one-week sanction can't be reduced with an early guilty plea.
The Giants will have to take the charge to the Tribunal and win if they're to have him play against Essendon on Saturday night at Spotless Stadium.
"The guys will have a chat about it tomorrow," Giants' CEO Dave Matthews told SEN on Monday night. 
"We were pretty relieved that he didn't have a fracture in that arm today and we'll just meet in the morning and decide from there, I think.
"Tom Boyd kicked four goals in the NEAFL side on the weekend and it could provide an opportunity for him but (there is) no firm decision as yet."
Cameron played out the seven-point loss to the Hawks for the modest return of one goal from seven touches before going to hospital for an x-ray.
He was cleared of a fracture, which would have come as welcome news after his battles with an ankle injury and perforated eardrum in recent weeks. 
Co-captain Callan Ward backed the forward, who kicked 62 goals last season but has managed just one in each of his past three games, to emerge from his form slump.
"I think yesterday he played OK,” Ward said.
"I think his pressure and tackling was good.
"I think every forward goes through a form slump and he's going through that and he's a very mature young man so he'll be right."
Cameron said last week he wanted a long career with the Giants after a media report suggested his management had put contract extension talks on hold.
Matthews said the club was "bemused" by the fact Cameron was being talked about as potentially moving on when he still had a year to run on his contract.
He added the Giants believed the forward was happy at the club.
"He's got 18 months to run and I think obviously every other club in the competition should be talking about him as they would be talking about others," he said.
"That's due diligence, finding out what he's up to.
"But he's contracted until the end of 2015, he's been here from the very start, he seems very, very happy and he's someone we want to see really play for the Giants for a long time to come."
The Giants have until 11am on Tuesday to decide whether they will challenge Cameron's charge at the Tribunal.
He faces an increased penalty of two games if he contests it and fails.
