NIKON 18-200 VR broke?

Hello,

I had a friend borrow my 18-200 VR and here is what he did: The lense was mounted on a D7000. The camera was in manual focus. The lens was in automatic focus. He tried to focus the lens manually and the focus ring did not rotate and offer some resistance. He forced it and is stopped working. If you look into the lens you can see a flat cable loose (see picture)

Can anybody tell me what went wrong? Anybody have any idea if this is repairable and what this could cost?

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED VR Nikon D7000
