There will not be any mention of Terrell Owens during the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony in August.

In fact, the Hall of Fame is excluding Owens from the event entirely, according to executive director Joe Horrigan.

“The focus is on the guys who are here," Horrigan told Talk of Fame Network. "There’s no reason to bring him up as an individual. He’s not here.”

Owens will have to wait a little longer to get his gold jacket as well. Players typically receive their gold jackets at Friday's Gold Jacket dinner that will happen Aug. 3, but the Hall of Fame will instead mail Owens' gold jacket to him the following day.
