Dublin's Kevin O'Brien has been cleared of a biting allegation by the Central Hearings Committee.
The allegation came from their clash with Donegal in Ballybofey earlier this month.
A statement from the GAA said that on the basis of the evidence provided and the submissions made on behalf of both parties, the allegation was not proven.
The matter is now considered closed according to the Central Hearing Committee.
