Amorphophallus stem rotted, can it be saved?

Medium sized Amorphophallus konjac stem rotted and the stalk is falling over. I've had a couple do this. Could it regrow this year if I left it? Should I pull the "bulb" tuber out of the ground now and let it dry, store it, and see if it grows again next year? Seems like it might rot if left in ground.

I live in a borderline hardy area. Small bulb tubers do survive and sprout in the ground after Winter, I get surprised. Just had two Konjac pop out of the ground in the last week. Larger bulb tubers tend to rot. I lift out and store a larger tuber.
