What a pity !
the ogival plug I don't care, but the rip is scary!
I don't know if glue would suffice, if the structure is damaged (fragile)
there will happen some nasty resonances that will be audible.
Try some glue ...

If you know how to remove the original glue
And do the rest of the job ( voice coil former , the wires , centering , glue it
to the spider ,then the external suspension )
Here , a professional worker takes 40$ per hour

They look a bit like the Kevlar midrange drivers in my B&W's. There's very little cone movement on a mid so you might get away with patching the rip. Its not my field of expertise but I would perhaps be looking at some fabric "pasted" over it using something tough but slightly flexible to glue it. Polyurethane varnish maybe ?

The yellow woven cone looks very similar.
