Ceiling Crack

Today we were in the attic and stepped on ply wood instead of the beam and cracked the ceiling. Which would you recommend replacing first? Would fiberglass tape and bonding work on just the crack or will we need to replace everything? Thanks

You could save it by screwing the drywall down to the joist. see if that pulled it up flat. If not you will have to screw some backing up to pull it flat. Cut out any loose material out of the crack. Pre fill and bed mesh tape with quick set mud. then put 1 or 2 coats of lightweight over it. then sand smooth.
