Default Wyeast Question

Brewing the St. Paul Porter from Northern Brewer. I smacked the Wyeast pack a little hard and broke open the package and lost some of the yeast (not a lot maybe a few teaspoons). Is this going to cause problems when I pitch it?

How long has it been sitting open? I'd be kind of concerned about contamination myself.
