Any hope for my sod?

Laid fescue blend sod 5 weeks ago. About 2 weeks prior to that I sprayed vegetation killer. I used regular Roundup for half of the yard, and the enhanced Roundup that prevents future weeds for the other half. I did this without realizing that I would be planting sod in just a few weeks. For the first several weeks after laying the sod, all was very lush and green. However, for the past two weeks, the half that was sprayed with the weed preventer is starting to brown somewhat. Behalf that was sprayed with regular Roundup is doing great. I'm not sure, but I'm just guessing that browning side is a result of the Roundup with weed preventer. If that is the case, is there any hope or anything that I can do to increase the odds of the sod surviving? Take a look at the two comparison pictures, it's pretty clear to see which side is doing well and which side isn't.

It probably is the reason for the difference. Did you read the label? Here is a quote from the website regarding their Round up plus weed preventer (diquat and imazapic):

Where Not to Use

Do not use in lawns or for lawn renovation as Roundup Extended Control prevents desirable grasses from growing too. Do not spray around young plants or in an area that will be planted or seeded within 4 months. Note: for use in these areas use Roundup Weed & Grass Killer Ready-To-Use Plus or Roundup Weed & Grass Killer Super Concentrate.

Thank you tiemco for pointing out what I did wrong. Unfortunately you're too little, too late! as I realize what I did wrong. I was soliciting comments on whether or not I could do anything NOW to help the situation. Any way to lessen the impact that its having.

I did the same thing. Do you have an update? I was going to wait a month. Didn't want to wait four.
