Your kidding right? That could be lots of plants. Pretty much impossible without some pics.

Best guess is Vallisneria americana gigantea, commonly referred to as Jungle Val.

Did you plant it in the pot under your substrate? If so, take it out of the pot then plant it.

I did take it out of the pot and plant it but some of the roots and leaves were damaged while traveling do you think it will be okay?

It should be ok. A lot of plants go into shock after being transplanted. If you have root tabs, bury one down deep next to it. That will help it get going.

Jungle Val usually die off because of new water parameters. If you have a proper light, it will be healthy in few weeks. Just give it a time.
