HC Rex Ryan had weight-loss surgery last night.  Dennis Waszak, Jr. of The Associated Press is pretty much the source of the story, and all the papers are citing or reprinting his story:

Ryan underwent outpatient weight-loss procedure Saturday to help him fight obesity.

Ryan weighed 340 pounds at the start of last season, gaining at least 30 pounds after he was hired by the Jets in January 2009. He even tried a liquid diet during training camp and lost 20 pounds, but quickly gained it right back.
