Default I'm assuming this head is now a boat anchor

Had the car break the timing belt in the driveway, broke the cam bolt. I removed the cam and found this.

I'm thinking for sure its toast, I had no issue with oil pressure or anything but I'm wondering if I should also look at the oil pump just to be safe.

Clean up the journal/cap/cam, change the oil/filter, and roll it back together. Ghetto, yes, but it's either scrap or it'll run. Might as well give it a shot.
