In the process of repotting my Fiddle Leaf Fig, the top half snapped. It didn't snap off all the way, but enough to where it can't stand up on it's own.
This is an otherwise very healthy plant; lots of growth in the year that I've had it! However, I am still fairly new to caring for plants and hope I didn't just dig it's grave.

Should I completely snap off the branch that broke, or can I help it stand with a splint?
If I do snap it off, will that other piece grow if repotted?

Thanks in advance for any help!

It might be a little late, but you can 'splint' it and it will heal together. You can wrap it with green plastic tie tape several times and leave it on for 6 months to a year.
