How hard is it to bend a crank?

Just got into an 350 SBC that lost a lash cap. It went down the oil return hole and on it's way to the pan looks like it got jammed for a second between one of the crank counterweights and the side of the block--I can see the scratches on the counterweight. Found the cap in the pan broken in half. Any opinions on whether the cranks's OK?

I seriuosly doubt that the crank is damaged beyond the cosmetic scratches.

Really? that's the best news I've had all week! Thanks! I have an overactive imagination or oversensitive hearing and I thought I could detect a slight vibration that wasn't there before. But I'm going to put it back together and run it for awhile, see what happens. Appreciate the advice!

I only had the heads off, I'm hoping it will make it awhile before a full rebuild.
