I would take it out just yet. When was the last one the polyps came out? Can you try and prop it upright? In between the rocks maybe? So it sits up a bit...

Leathers are extremely hardy, give the guy at least a few more weeks before deciding he's too far gone. My toadstool would look like total crap for weeks and weeks and then come back strong as ever. They every now and then will do that, mine has done it for years.
I would def try to prop it between some rocks and get it upright though, thats a good suggestion. It will over time attach to those rocks so make sure you pick a good set of rocks to put him in.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
