If the cable fell off and is loose, the brakes should be free. The E-Brake pedal ratchet mechanism is what holds the cable tight when the brake is applied. It may be that the cable is rusted somewhere along the line not allowing it to release. You'll play hell getting the drums off if the brake is set.
