Re-Using Crystal Frequency of HCS08 on another board component

Hi, I'm using the HCS08LG32 with an external 4.9152MHz xtal.  Another component on the board is the ADS1241 (24-bit A/D converter), which also uses a 4.9152MHz crystal.  Is it possible to use the xtal on the LG32 and port the frequency somehow into the ADS1421 ?  My goal here is to eliminate the cost/space for one of the crystals.  If I tried this, would I need to use a buffer ?
