Can you jump a car still after engine blown?

My car has 10498 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

when you say the engine is blown there are different levels of a blown engine. If your engine is seized then it cannot be jumped since the engine will not turn. If you have a blown head gasket and engine can still turn then you may be able to jump start the engine for a short time if engine is overheating or runs real bad.
