Replacing roof truss

A contractor was replacing soffit and fascia on my house when he discovered a rotted roof truss. How difficult would it be to replace this truss? Can you give me a ballpark figure too?

I am not able to access this area to get any pics. This piece of wood runs in the same direction as the plate but I can't imagine the roof trusses were attached to it or else the roof wouldn't be standing anymore. Maybe it was a shoddy repair that someone else had done by nailing it onto the plate? I hope that may help you in trying to identify what part I'm talking about.
