Default Shift linkage problem

Just yesterday I went to shift the truck into park but the stick would go slack after Reverse and not make it to park, I have to reach under the truck to get it in park, It's automatic.

I looked under the truck and noticed the linkage going through a metal bracket but it's not connected, is this normal.

Its the only thing that seems out of place.

You need to either try to pull the cable back into that bracket, or find another cable if the one you have is broken.

If yours looks like the picture your cable is broken and needs replacement.
