Did it just rub or did it cut? How deep? Have you got a picture?
With all those it will still come down to how safe you feel with it. If you do not feel safe or you are going to be thinking about it all the time it is no fun to ride.

A rub mark is nothing to worry about as long as it doesn't cut through the outer skin and into the carcass of the tire.

One side only means your inner fender brace is not centered properly over tire, before going nuts w/grinder, loosen fender, outer struts, inner brace, and reposition.

it didnt cut tire but it did rub a finger width groove not deep but you can see that it shines about half way around the tire thanks for the info.

try loosening the fender bolts and centering it over the tire.
