Not a good sign. If the car was running, which I presume, the crankshaft isn't broken. If it has that much wobble to it, the crankshaft is probably scored and the bearings are on the far side of worn out. In either case, effectively, to pull the crankshaft, the transmission has to come out and if you do that, it is easier to just pull the whole engine.

You can pull the oil pan, pull the front main cap and check it, but if the crankshaft has any play in it, that you can feel, the engine is really probably shot.
