Samsung 32J4003 USB pin bent/half broken :(

Folks, I ordered a 90 degree USB adapter and got it yesterday. Out of excitement, I tried putting it in Samsung LED and in the process the USB last two pins bent downwards. Little did I know that this USB has open pins without any bottom support. Now I am left with only one unusable USB port.

In the rescue operation, I tried to straighten up the pins with a screw driver and clipper, but the upper half just chipped off (very brittle material).

Now what are the options to revive it using – some hack or soldering or using jumper wires or hdmi-to-usb convertor or something else. Also is there a way to test, if it is completely gone or there is a hope.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
