Detroit Lions this and that: Ndamukong Suh's dives and Eric Fisher's rise

This and that:

— Jim Schwartz doesn’t seem concerned that Ndamukong Suh will risk injury when he participates in ABC’s new reality show “Celebrity Diving.” I don’t know. Diving isn’t exactly croquet. Not sure how experienced the big guy is in this endeavor. Wonder what his teammates think.

— Central Michigan offensive lineman Eric Fisher (see photo) has seen his stock rise this week during Senior Bowl practice. There’s a chance he could be the first offensive lineman drafted. Will the Lions jump at him? Can’t imagine that they would. Of course, who saw them drafting Riley Reiff in the first round.

— To clear up a little confusion about the Lions draft picks, they have six. They have no fourth-round pick because they sent it to the Vikings during the draft last year so they could select Tahir Whitehead. Yes, wide receiver MIke Thomas cost a fifth-round pick, but it’s in 2014. So at this point they have six picks starting with the fifth overall pick.

— Also, the teams who are done for the season (all but the 49ers and Ravens) have their rosters frozen until the day after the Super Bowl which is Feb. 4 this year. If teams want to make cuts they have to wait until that day to make it official.

— Does anyone think Titus Young will return to the Lions next season? I thought there was a small chance until he tweeted this week that if he doesn’t get the ball more he doesn’t want to play. Haven’t heard that line since sixth grade.
