Leaving fallen comb on the floor of the hive is not a good idea. Odds are that more irregular comb will get attached to that fallen comb, particularly since the queen cage (with its attractive scent) is there also.

Its not clear to me from your post whether the queen was actually released from the cage, but if not, the cage may be in a position that the bees cannot release her. Waiting to fix this is not not going to improve the situation.
