Default Broke top out of sprout

I have several sprouts coming out of my hop rhizome and was wrapping the little gut around some time to get a lattice going.. and my most healthy looking sprout about 2 foot long broke right under the second leaf (about 8 in removed) will this sprout seize to grow or what?

That vine is done growing vertically anymore. Without the tip of the vine, it is unable to grow vertically anymore. It may grow outwards, but don't worry. You'll have other vines that will grow good and strong.

Cut it at the ground and wait for another one.

I disagree, last year I had the same thing happen. It forced early side arm development and the little buddy kept on, but with two bines instead of one.

I agree with anderj - don't cut it. Leave it and it may 'Y' out and produce a couple bines.

My Cascade rhizome had all the nodes knocked off of it in transit and it still started growing when I put it in the ground, so who knows. I wouldn't cut it.
