Mechanical HDDs don't hold up well to physical abuse. Can you hear the platters spinning? Is there any clicking noise? Clicking generally means death. Hopefully you have your files backed up.

You can open up the external enclosure and see if the drop jarred something loose but yeah, as already mentioned, it's probably dead.
