New York — Rex Ryan is challenging two of his Jets players to slim down before training camp.

Ryan, who underwent lap-band surgery two months ago, began a contest with defensive tackle Kris Jenkins and offensive tackle Damien Woody to see who can lose the most weight by July 30 — the day before the team reports for camp.

Ryan told 1050 ESPN radio and the team’s Web site that the winner would earn a donation to his favorite charity. Ryan says he has lost about 40 pounds since his procedure and is down to 311.

Jenkins, recovering from knee surgery, is listed at 360, and Woody at 330.
