Likely you did do some damage to the engine even if you only damaged the oil filter in the hit. If you mean an actual half mile, then maybe not (about 20-30s at highway speeds), if you are coming up with a figure (and you actually mean a couple of minutes of run time)...then probably that you did damage to the engine. A few seconds of no forced lubrication isn't likely to do damage if the engine speed isn't high, but a couple of minutes is likely to.
