Even if this was the case, 1 inch is way too much play. Your engine should not move hardly at all, but with worn motor mounts it will be able to give and can cause harm to other components. An "oldschool" way of temp. fixing the problem is to chain the engine down. This will hold for a temp. time, until you can pay for proper repairs. Estimate is below for replacing one of your motor mounts. The part is much more expensive then the labor, so $600 is a fair price to pay for replacing both motor mounts.
Hope this helps..
