browning sod

i have just laid out alot of sod and the first layers are great still green and growing since it has been raining alot where i am. since i dont have alot of time on my hands i could not lay all of the sod during the week, so as i was laying it today alot of the sod was yellowish/brownish with the corners being green still since they were rolled up. i am hoping that with alot of watering they will come back.

my question is: should i be worried that they wont come back???

it has only been a week of them being rolled up and i have wetting the sod everyday to make sure they dont dry up and they havent. but i am worried about the discoloration.

browning sod

Discoloration is due to lack of sunlight
Any plant without sunshine for a week may die
Sod is supposed to be rolled out same day
Hope for the best
