Looks like u just need to remove that one little side piece that was connected to the bad stuff (looks to be mayb 14 inches long and a inch or two wide) and then replace it with a full board.
The door was a Prehung door so they just shimmed it to fit the opening. Nothing wrong with that at all. You’ll just cut a few shim pieces to put behind it for your new board to set out on. OR you might be able to take a treated 2×6 and trim and thin it down to fit
Something that you can do if you are worried about the stud behind the door getting wet over time is u can paint it with some oil base paint or something like that to seal it.
