Can I replace a shattered glass screen without a digitizer replacement

I dropped my IPhone 6 on the top right corner onto concrete the other day getting it out of my pocket. The glass at that corner is gone and the screen has multiple cracks veining throughout the screen, but the entire screen is responsive which leads me to believe only the surface glass is damaged, not the actual touch screen. In fact, I'm asking this question with the phone and I am having no trouble. Is it possible for me to just get a replacement glass without paying $60-$70 on a new LCD/Digitizer/Glass combo? I just want to buy a $20 glass repair kit and simply replace the glass.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I realize you're trying to save money. However, unless you've done this a number of times, like Tom Chai said, you'll likely just break more things than you'll fix. Also, if you decide to save money on a display assembly, from a third party vendor. You'll also likely have more problems, down the road. Put the extra $10-$30 in, and you'll buy yourself some peace of mind

Here's a guide of how to put everything together, if you decide to go that route
