Stress crack in Durock

During tile installation i notice a horizontal stress crack on the shower vertical wall ( see photo ). This is one area that i was not able to install vertical or horizontal supports do to shower piping. In this area, Durock is fasten to the studs at 22" OC with screws. Should i cover the stress crack with Durock glass fiber tape and thinset or should I make a horizontal stress relief cut across the board in the crack area? This Durock has been in place for over a month. Please help
