Default Oxygen in Keg?? Ruined??

Back story: brewed american brown ale w/ coffee. Sat in primary 4 weeks racked to corny keg for dry hopping last week and I did not purge with CO2 after closing lid. I know oxidation and all that jazz will produce cardboard flavors. Any chance it will have no effect if I force carb in the next day?? Thx

It's no too late to purge it. You should have had some CO2 come out of solution and form a layer on top of the beer which will have helped protect it. Purge the headspace whenever you can, and start carbing.

I strongly agree with Juan.
