The Collingwood defender is facing a potential four-year ban after allegedly testing positive in a match day drug test following the loss to Richmond in Round 19.
It is believed the 20-year-old consumed the illicit substance on the Tuesday or Wednesday ahead of the blockbuster clash at the MCG, days after playing against North Melbourne.

The Herald Sun reported on Monday night that Murray has hired the same lawyer who defended Josh Thomas and Lachie Keefe, who were banned for two years in 2015 after consuming clenbuterol while taking illicit drugs at a music festival.

‚ÄúHe‚Äôs either stupid or he has a drug problem,‚ÄĚ Robinson said on AFL 360 on Monday night.
‚ÄúI just can‚Äôt believe an AFL player would indulge, allegedly, on cocaine two or three days out from a game of AFL football, in the education the players get now, in the environment of what happened at Collingwood in recent years with their two players.
‚ÄúEddie McGuire and the board and Nathan Buckley have worked really hard to put in a cultural level at that club.
‚ÄúFor them to be spat in the face by this man, either he is the most stupid player in the AFL or he has a problem that he needs to seek help.‚ÄĚ
Dual Brownlow medallist Judd was shocked that a player would be using illicit drugs days out from any game, let alone the biggest game of Collingwood‚Äôs season.
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt know if there are any underlying mental health issues, but it is hard to imagine an AFL player partying like that in the middle of the week at this end of the season,‚ÄĚ Judd said on Footy Classified.
Footy Classified host Craig Hutchinson shared the same view as Judd and was astounded that it has happened at Collingwood again, a few years after Josh Thomas and Lachie Keefe were caught with clenbuterol in their systems after using illicit drugs at a music festival.
‚ÄúI think the two things that shocked everyone the most were the fact that it was mid-week ‚ÄĒ presumably around Tuesday, Wednesday to be still in the system ‚ÄĒ and that it can be from that club, because of all the clubs who watch two teammates go through the horrific two years out, as they did.
‚ÄúWhat would go through a player‚Äôs mind mid-week?‚ÄĚ
