it could very easily be a rocker arm that has popped off they do that on very rare occasions i have seen this on multiple versions of the magnum series engines and are easily put back into place with the right tool. The other option could be a collapsed hydraulic lifter which can also be replaced, generally if its the top end on these motors its not something serious.
