If the broken pin is just a ground pin it should still work.You can use a sharp thin knife to straighten out the bent pins.Otherwise if you still kept the broken pin and desperately need the CPU to work again a jeweler could resolder it back on.
It's an older CPU either way.

For straightening bent CPU pins, I prefer an empty mechanical pencil.
