Cook it this weekend or freeze my friend. Oxygen is a briskets enemy.

I would freeze it over the weekend, and the dry age it for 5 or 6 days as it thaws. But that's just me.

I think that leaving it in a punctured cryovac could be a bit of trouble with bacteria clinging to the wet exterior.

Open it up...Any abnormal odor, coloration, slimey'ness?

I'd rinse it with vinegar, then water, and wrap it back up with plastic wrap and paper and refer til you're gunna use it (soon).
Who knows, the tear could've just happened before you grabbed it...maybe not. Ya never know....You know the old saying...

"When it doubt..... Dry freeze it and send it to Scotty".
