I have two questions: 1) many of my tubers were damaged in harvest because the ground was so hard from pounding rain. I cured them anyway. Will they keep? 2) I placed them in a plastic tub lined with brown paper and covered them with a shallow cardboard box and then a feed bag over that. They are in a cool cement room. Will the plastic tub be an issue?

Damaged sweet potatoes will not keep as well as undamaged ones, so keep the damaged ones in a separate container and eat them first.
I think the plastic tub will be fine, since you seem to be providing ventilation through the top. You may want to check at some point to make sure the interior has high humidity, but not excessive condensation.
