It can only be fixed via micro-soldering there is no way around it as there are broken circuit traces at that long screw damage spot.

Edit: Well as Minho said there aren't any major circuit traces at that spot only for NFC so the phone should work fine.

This particular standoff doesn't have any inner layer traces that get damaged. The only thing though is that the standoff is connected to the adjacent capacitor for the NFC antenna. So without the standoff, only the NFC will be affected.
