until you get it open there is really no way to know if the pump is bad or the oil pickup tube dropped, but if you lost oil pressure and continued to run it, there is a good chance that you have some damaged bearings.
don't assume anything till you inspect it, it might save you some money.
If it was mine, I would pull the engine and put it on a stand so that you can work on it. once you get the front out of the way, it is not that much more to pull the engine.
