If the ring gear is damaged to the point of not working, it should have gone thru a phase of partially working. As described above. In that phase you should hear a lot of gear knashing as the pinion gear tries to engage with a faulty ring gear. It will sound like bad synchros in your gear box as the pinion gear tears more metal off the worn ring gear. If you haven't heard this, then unlikely to be cause of start problem.
