Here’s a roundup of what we learned from the Bengals’ final week of OTAs.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals-Training Camp Cincinnati Enquirer-USA TODAY NETWORK

Bengals OTAs wrap up this week and mandatory minicamp is next Tuesday through Thursday in Cincinnati. The rest of this week’s practices will be closed to the media though, so let’s take a look at what we were able to learn via Twitter from the practice fields in Phase 3 of OTAs.

The Bengals hosted a group from Wounded Warriors during practice on Tuesday.

A.J. Green did not take part in contact drills, likely just because there’s no reason for him to do so. He did have a minor scare last week, but it’s nothing to be concerned about.

Tra Carson wasn’t practicing on Tuesday. He had been participating in prior OTA sessions.

T.J. Johnson and Jordan Evans were on the rehab field while Dre Kirkpatrick didn’t work and Tyler Kroft wasn’t in attendance. Carlos Dunlap continued to be a no-show, too. Kroft had been dealing with some type of injury in other OTA sessions, so the team may have given him the day off.

An awesome image of a touchdown pass being thrown from Andy Dalton to Tyler Eifert.

Ryan Hewitt made a one-handed catch in practice on Tuesday. Let’s see him do it in the regular season. Let’s even just see him being used?!

Here’s John Ross in a jersey and catching a pass! Yes, he can catch passes, in case you were wondering after he failed to do that during his rookie year.

Here’s a Green sighting:

And another:

Here’s Giovani Bernard in action, you’d have to think he’s going to be even better this season than he was last year.

The Bengals will practice twice more this week before mandatory minicamp next week. It’ll be interesting if Dunlap returns at that point.
