If its missing you will get super lean readings. COuld be something as simple as sparkplugs or plug wires.
If it will drive I would advise you try to drive it home. Youre not going to hurt it if you stay out of the throttle, being super lean at cruise just makes the engine buck,

Double check wiring, both at the sensors and at the MS. Make sure something didn't wobble loose. Check any grounds that are accessible or that you can get to.

Be careful on the side of the road.
