Jets coach Rex Ryan has always been as big as his boasts, but he might not have the stomach for it anymore. In an effort to fight his obesity, Ryan underwent weight-loss surgery Saturday at NYU Medical Center, the Daily News has learned. A scheduled lap-band procedure was performed on Ryan, team spokesman Bruce Speight said Saturday night. Ryan, 47, who weighed 340 pounds at the start of last season, was released after the morning surgery and returned to his home in New Jersey, Speight said. Ryan, who also had a hernia repaired while in the hospital, was unavailable for comment. The surgery entails placing an adjustable gastric band around the upper part of the stomach. It makes the stomach smaller so it holds less food. Eventually, the appetite decreases, leading to weight loss. –NY Daily News
