I bent my neck sideways and it didn't pop or crack. I should have no spinal cord injury?

In brief: Correct
You cannot injure your spinal cord like that in most cases.
In very rare cases a sudden jerk of the neck can cause a tear in one of the arteries in the neck which can injure the brain or the spinal cord but that is rare.
