Broken Remington 1100 Shell Catcher

This summer my Remington 1100 broke.

Major problems inside the receiver.

I had to re-stake the Feed Latch and have the Disconnector replaced.

After repairs, I shot the firearm and found I had to replace the shell catcher. It was loose and not doing it's job. I carry a spare so not a problem.

I took a look at the catcher today thinking I might be able to repair it.

Upon inspection, I found a sliver of metal running along the entire inside edge of the catcher at the bottom of the lip, missing.

Did the sliver of metal that broke off cause the damage inside the receiver or was it just a coincidence?
