Sanchez threw three interceptions over the course of two practice periods, displaying the type of ball-security issues that got him benched last season.
"Yeah, it is. Absolutely. It's a good thing defense makes the plays, but no, I'd rather him not turn the ball over once," Ryan said. "He did a lot of great things, and then those negative things, at the end of the day, that's what gets you beat. And so we got to do a better job of eliminating those turnovers."
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Sanchez finished practice 6-of-11 passing with three interceptions in 15 snaps. Smith finished 3 of 10 with one interception in 14 snaps. Both players were "sacked" once.
Once seen as the face of the franchise, Sanchez's stock has plummeted thanks to 52 turnovers in his last 31 games.
"This is OTAs and things, but yeah, that's going to be the pressure that were putting on him," Ryan said. "He did a lot of great things. It's not that you try to cover up the fact you had some bad plays -- no, no, no you flat tell him. We can't have these and all that type of stuff. He knows."
