can anyone answer a cuke question

Massachusetts, United States Us

I had a good length of about 6 feet of cucumber vine growing and something ate through it at about 4 feet, now my question is can i somehow save the two feet of vine remaining by placing in water to wait for roots, or planting in soil to see if it takes root or any advice



I woudn't of thought it would work as such a large piece would wilt and die before it has a chance of rooting. They do get mildew too, so siting in soil waiting for roots to form would incourage mildew and possible infect the healthy living half.
