It is possible, usually though on these engines they seem to snap before they jump.

As for the damage it depends on how far the chain has jumped, if its only minor then chances are the timing is out, therefore it won't run. Installing a new Chain, Tensioner and Guides should solve the problem. If its jumped quite far then you could have some internal damage such as bent valves.
