Issue w/ Parity Drive

I had this issue back in January:

I was gone for two weeks on vacation. When I came back home, I found that the parity on my unraid server was no longer valid and it was showing over one-hundred-trillion (?!) reads to the drive, along with over a thousand errors. Ive had this drive in my array since September of last year, so not very long at all. I was unable to get the drive to spin up for a S.M.A.R.T. test, but the server wasn't recognizing it as connected. I replaced the SATA cable and was able to run an extended test; it returned with no errors. Is it safe to assume the issues were due to the SATA cable? Is there something else I should do to test the drive before I start using it again?
