That is very possible. However, it is based on why the driveshaft was removed. Do you know if it was making noise, grinding, or banging? Now that the driveshaft is removed, is there any noise?
Let me know. This is a tough one because I don't know the specifics. It could be something serious or simple, such as a carrier bearing for the driveshaft assembly.
The drive shaft for the rear wheels is actually three smaller driveshafts joined together. Where they join, there are bearing supports that can fail. That wouldn't be difficult or expensive to replace.
I attached a pic below showing the drive shaft, so you have a reference. Take a look at it and let me know if you have questions. Also, let me know as much as you can as to why it may have been removed.
See pic below.
