Before doing other things, unhook the linkage on the shifter, at the arm on the trans. Put it in park manually with that arm. The go up & put the shift lever in the park position. Under the car, see if the linkage stub will slide into the trans arm freely, or if it's misaligned. If it's way off, adjust the linkage to let it go in the trans arm easily. Then try to get it to work again....If it doesn't, it may have more serious problems...

If you didn't find a crap ton of metal shavings inside the pan when you dropped it then it's probably something more basic like the "S" hook on the shift linkage inside the transmission. It may have come undone. It's directly inside where the shift shafts goes through the case. Here is a pic.
