Think my apple tree will survive??

Some deer always cross my yard right next to this new apple tree I planted last year. One of them decided it would make a good spot for a rub. Think it will survive the rubbin?

I've seen young trees like that survive a rub.

If the bark wasn't cut all the way around it might make it
