Axle help

I have a bit if a dilemma, I broke the outer stub axle on my Dana 44 while wheeling a few nights ago on my daily driver and I need a way to school. I was wondering if I pulled out the axle shaft and put the outer stub back in as a spindle, could I drive with it until my new one came in sometime next week? I would only be driving around 6 miles both ways. Any help would be appreciated.

If the outer is what you broke how are you putting it back in? The outer needs to be intact. It holds the unit bearing together.
