RTÉ News understands that Tyrone's Tiernan McCann has been informed that the GAA has recommended that he receive a two-match ban for the incident in last weekend's Ulster Championship semi-final against Donegal.
While trying to wrestle the ball back from Donegal defender Stephen McMenamin, who was on the ground, McCann appeared to reach into McMenamin's mouth and also appeared to stand on the Donegal defender's neck in an incident that went unpunished by referee David Gough at the time.

It is not yet known whether the recommendation is to be appealed. The deadline for lodging an appeal is today.
