Rex Ryan removed lap band to support brother Rob
Rex Ryan is proving that blood is thicker than, well, his gut.
The Buffalo Bills head coach got surgery to reverse the lap band procedure he had done in 2010 as a show of support of his brother Rob.
Rob had a bad experience with his lap band and had it removed. Rex meanwhile got his removed to show his brother he is on his side.
“I told him, we’ll figure this out together (without the Lap Band),” Rex told the New York Post. “Plus, I won more games without it than did with it in.”
Since removing his lap band, Rex has gained about 30 pounds. He weighed nearly 360 pounds prior to having the procedure done in Jan. 2010. As of 2014, he had lost about 130 pounds.
