Workflow Status Column not Showing in List

I have inherited a list that had ~9 workflows. Many were not active. The only active wf for new items (#9) does not appear in the list. I have reduced the total workflows down to 6. How does I make this workflow status column appear for wf #9?

 

I have reviewed this post explaining why it happens but I do not want to alter the central admin settings. Additionally, I have seen a suggestion to go to List > Workflow Settings > Workflow Settings > Remove, Block, or Restore a Workflow and remove all iterations of the wf, rerun the workflow, and then it should appear. However, there are 600+ open items currently running the wf and I am hesitant to do this if it will interfere with current processing.

 

1) Will removing this will causing issues for running wfs? Have to assume yes.

2) How else can I add the linked wf status column for wf #9?
