Ripped LCD wire while pulling off screen

While prying the screen off on my iPhone 5, the screen came out fast and it over extended, ripping the wires attached to the motherboard from the screen. Can I buy just those wires? Or am I going to have to replace my whole LCD? I just wanted to replace my battery and now I'm in this frustration

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

You need a whole new LCD/digitizer combo. Just check you didn't damage the motherboard connector too..
