This dust cover is pretty much unimportant. I actually had to remove one of the dust covers on my wife's 1990 Toyota Camry when it rusted to the point where it bent and touched the brake rotor while driving, making a horrible noise. We noticed no ill effects from doing this and we never replaced the dust cover. You should be fine to remove the sharp edges or remnants of the dust cover and keep on rolling.
