ADF missing foot

I have 2 ADFs in my 10g tank and i noticed 2 days ago that one of them is missing a front foot. He can get to the surface fine to get air but i have not seen him eat yet. i know it has happened since i brought them home cause i know they were fine when i put them in there.

What if anything should i do? and just curious do ADF limbs grow back?

Yes, their limbs can grow back over time. Include extra calcium in their diet, like ReptoMin Frog. Here is a link with a bit more details for you...
