Storm prop Alex Chan is facing a month-long suspension after he was today charged with a grade one reckless high tackle on Parramatta back-rower Nathan Hindmarsh during Melbourne�s six-point win over the Eels on Saturday night.
The Storm faces the prospect of heading into Sunday�s clash with competition heavyweights the Roosters without the services of key forwards Chan, Robbie Kearns (eye injury) and Danny Williams (pending suspension).
Having already missed a month of football this season after being found guilty of two high tackle charges, Chan will miss four weeks if he enters an early guilty plea but faces a six-match ban if he attempts to beat the charge and is subsequently found guilty.
Chan was outed for two matches after taking the Dragons� Ryan Powell high in Round 3 before being suspended for a further two weeks after a high tackle on Cowboys forward Michael Luck in Round 7.
The Storm has until tomorrow to decide whether it will contest the charge.
