If the scavenge pump wasn't turning, it would allow a tremendous amount of oil to pack-up and head out of the bearing seals, but don't think it would likely damage the shaft and bearings (assuming damage since you mentioned the play in the shaft). If this were the case (no scavenge action), you would have had oil pouring out of it immediately after startup.

About 6 years ago, I installed a brand spanking new turbo that lost it's bearings and seals in less than 5 minutes of run time, so in other words, it happens, unfortunately.

And absolutely do as Chris recommends above.
