Default crushed torch coral

I got a shipment of coral in today. After acclimation I was placing my new torch coral into position and as I was placing it, one of the sides got crushed. That part of the live rock it was on was really brittle. I wasnt even putting any pressure on it. Anyway, on the left side, about 15% of it got crushed. Is this anything that I need to be worried about or are these hardy enough that it will boune back just fine? What do I need to look for to see if its gonna be fine or not?
Thx

what part was crushed? the fleshy head or the "stalk"? if it was the head..chances are that if the flesh was damaged that head wont make it..the others will be fine though..if it was the stalk..nothing to worry about
