Is there a way to update the status without updating the workflow model?

We have a very open role model for JIRA as our team is very small, we did not want to introduce a heavy role and permission model for the workflow, so everyone in our team, is able to set any status transitions. Unfortunately a dev has set some issue to status, which are not yet reached by the process, so I would like to set them back to the actual status.

Do I have to implement a screen and transition for this or is there another admin way of updating these issues back to the correct status?

You will have to update the workflows unfortunately. Only other option will be to fix it in DB but it is not recommended and not worth the trouble for a single issue.
