The best bet is to see if e2fsck can find a backup superblock (man
e2fsck, see "-b" option).  If you think there's on-disk corruption, you
really want to take a copy of the disk before attempting that ("dd
conv=sync,noerror" from one disk to a fresh one.)

If e2fsck can find the backup superblock, it will be able to recreate
the primary one so that the fs is mountable again.

Cheers,
