I can't see that it has any roots at all. Usually the swords I've gotten at Petsmart will have at least a few good, white roots and I trim off any that don't look healthy before planting.

If it were me, I'd just go ahead and pull it out and replace it with a new one. Sorry, I think it was already too damaged before you even got it.
