Transitions to coaching

Cross (shoulder) has been hired as an assistant underneath University of Memphis coach Mike Norvell on Wednesday, Jonah Jordan reports.

Analysis: Cross played 14 games in 2018, logging two catches for nine yards on five targets before being placed on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury. Set to become a restricted free agent this offseason, the 25-year-old now faces the decision of whether to remain in the NFL or return to his alma mater as a coach. Cross is keeping the door open for 2019, according to Greg Auman of The Athletic, and could play if he receives the right offer.

Headed to injured reserve

Cross (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Scott Smith of reports.

Analysis: The shoulder injury that forced Cross to the sideline during Sunday's loss to the Ravens is severe enough to send the tight end to the injured reserve list as well. Cross' 2018 campaign comes to an end with two catches for nine yards on five targets in 14 games.

Leaves with shoulder injury

Cross won't return to Sunday's game against the Ravens after sustaining a shoulder injury, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Analysis: Cross was originally questionable to return before being downgraded. Anthony Auclair is the only other active tight end for the Buccaneers behind starter Cameron Brate.
