Unhappy cracked exhaust manifold issues need advice

i have a 01 wrangler se and cracked my exhaust manifold.
i drove it for about a week while waiting for new headers to arrive in the mail.
while driving about 45 mph the ticking started getting louder and louder then she started sputering badly so i killed it and towed it home.
i tried to start it a couple of times but it sounded really rough so i quit.
please tell me that i dont have cracked valve seats or bent valves or anything like that!!!!!!
what happened and will it start up with a new manifold on it?
could it just be bad code from the 02 sensors?
the crack is terrible... 6 inches long and (in my opinion) pretty wide too.
please advise.

If everything else is okay.. I would think once you get the new part on it should be okay..but the key word is should... If you go start it up right now.. will it start and run?
