Is my spider plant a goner?

I left my spider in my mother's care for a couple months only to find that she was over watering it. It was at the point where it was unable to even hold up its own weight. So I dug it up and discovered that the roots were all rooted back to the base. However on one side there is a tiny healthy root about 3 inches long. What should my plan of action be from here?

Channer,
I might be corrected, but if it were my plant, I'd put knock all the soil off and "plant" it in a glass of water until it develops new roots (just the way you would with a baby spider plant to make roots).
