Mid-repair torn cable, do I need to replace this?

#1
While doing a combo power and sensor cable/dock connector repair (I tore the dock connector completely while peeling it back) I noticed a small half-tear to the black cable attached to the audio jack that connects to the logic board. Will this function in its current state or do I need to replace it?

The focus point was behind the area your wanting to show, So it is kinda blurry. I'm no repair tech by any means, but I have a feeling if it's torn, even slightly, it would need to be replaced.

Thanks. I really don't think I can take any more of this, so I'm just going to try and reassemble the phone and hope for the best. If it doesn't work, I'll send it somewhere to be fixed or just live with it until I get a new phone.
