Yes, as long as the roots are still intact, the plants should be fine. However, to help alleviate future issues with deer, you may need to add some deterrents to the area. These articles will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/deer/deer-repellents.htm

Leave them as they are. They should come up again in the spring as long as the deer didn't dig up the roots.
