Ron,

With regards to your concerns about the Durock being some what damaged, as long as your tile contractor properly tapes the seams and other areas that have been damaged, the installation will be fine. The other areas that I speak of are any broken or damaged areas that are not near a seam.. so he should apply some mesh tape over that portion and pack it with thinset. I've personally broken 1000s of sheets of Cement Backer Units in my career, no problems as of yet.. so no worries.
