shifter came loose, car moved w/o clutch engaged, now something underneath loose on 1994 Mercury Capri

first gear shifter arm came loose, broken, couldn't shift. when car was towed and rolled off tow truck I think that clutch was not engaged because now something underneath, attached to shifter is also broke. what could it be, is it serious where I will need an entire transmission? or just some rods
