Depends on the term "loose." If the eyelet is pulled out of the rim, and/or there is cracking in the rim around the eyelet, this normally means the rim is shot. A pulled eyelet normally means that the spoke can't be tensioned properly anymore.
If the eyelet is just loose, and the spoke can have proper tension, then that may not be much of a deal.
