Jerry Jones talks Ezekiel Elliott following incident

Ezekiel Elliott has been in the news recently for off the field issues.

On Tuesday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones addressed the media at a ceremony for the new Baylor medical facility near The Star in Frisco, Texas, and spoke about his young running back.

"As you well know, because of his style and personality, it's like a rock star wherever he goes in terms of attention," Jones said, via Rob Phillips of the team's official website. "Anybody that's experienced that knows that takes getting used to. You have to learn many aspects of that. Certainly, Zeke is evolving and being subject to needing to learn how to deal with the media and social media the way it is today."

Elliott was involved in a late-night incident at a Dallas bar on Sunday, police confirmed Monday. No arrests were made and Elliott's involvement in the situation remains unknown.

Jones added that he spoke to Elliott about the incident, but wouldn't get into details or speculate.

News also came out Tuesday of Elliott's appeal of a misdemeanor conviction he received in April for driving 100 mph in a 70 mph zone in Frisco, Texas, according to court records. He filed his appeal on Monday, July 17.

Elliott is currently being investigated by the NFL for domestic violence allegations made by his former girlfriend in July 2016.

Jones said Tuesday he has no update on the league's investigation.

After Elliott's offseason incidences and several suspensions, Jones was asked what his message would be to Cowboys players.

"Your actions impact an entire team, they impact an entire fan base," he said, via NBC5's Pat Doney.
