Wire Cut to AC Fan Motor

I took apart my AC unit to clean the coils tonight and after putting the unit back together and turning on the AC I discovered a mistake. I left one wire from the fan motor to the capacitor too close to the fan blades and it was cut. Of course the fan stopped spinning and I immediately shut off the AC and disconnected power.

The purple wire in this video is the wire that was cut...Wiring From AC Motor To Capacitor... - YouTube Any advice?

Question: Will the whole motor need to be replaced or will I be able to replace the cut wire itself?
