To begin with, here's an article containing some info on elephant eat that you might not know: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/elephant-ear/storing-elephant-ear-bulbs.htm
The tubers should be planted blunt end down. That being said, it's hard to know how much of the important growing parts of your tubers were damaged. I would plant them all, and see what happens.
