Thought I fixed it but it's still broke down

My '05 Mini Cooper S quit running while I was just cruising down the road at about 35mph. I had it towed back home and looked into it and it gave me the code that my camshaft position sensor was bad. I replaced it and cleared the code but it still won't start. This is the first major issue I've had and I'm in need of some help.

Is the cam in its correctly timed position? You replaced a sensor that said there was a cam position error by the sensor, but if the sensor wasnt at fault then maybe the cam timing has altered, such as the chain jumping a tooth say?? which can happen if the chain is very worn or the tensioner isnt working properly?

The sensor was pretty busted up (as in part of it missing) but those are also some good suggestions. I'll look into it. Thanks for the advice
