Hi. If your muffler has fallen and is dragging on the ground then it more than likely has a broken bracket. It can also be a broken pipe. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect for possible breaks in the exhaust system and replace the bad exhaust supports.
