Unhappy Help with bleaching Acropora

Hi guys,

A couple months ago, I'd bought 3 small frags of beautiful Acroporas. 2days ago I was rearranging my rocks and one of my blue acroporas fell through the rocks and landed on my bubble coral, which I rescued and positioned back where it was before.
Since that incident my acropora has been beaching from the base part, however the upper half has not bleached.

Is it too late to save my frag?

What should I be doing to save it?

BTW My other two frags are doing well.

Use your fingers to break it if you dont have bone cutters which you can buy from Dr Fosters or other online sources.

And then glue to live rock as you said.
