Reading have been charged with failing to control their players after an incident in the goalless draw at Swansea last week.
Winger Hal Robson-Kanu fouled Swansea counterpart Nathan Dyer, and the ball was then kicked at Robson-Kanu's head as he lay on the floor.
That triggered a coming together of a number of players from both sides and the Football Association has charged the Royals.
The club has until September 8 to respond to the charge.
