Default rubber stopper or strainer

When pushing the carb though the lid of my fermenter, I pushed the rubber stopper all the way through and it fell into the wort.

Would it be better to sanitize a strainer and then try to get the rubber stopper out, or should I just let it sit there for the duration of fermentation until I open it up to transfer to bottling container?

I know its probably a silly question and it looks like kind of a cryptic thread title...

I'm pretty sure it will be fine to just leave it as it is, just want to make sure by running it by everyone here.

it happens to everyone. Your beer will be fine. leave it in there and just put the airlock into the hole w/o the grommet, or seal it with tape.
Happened to me on my first brew and it turned out fine, acruall better than fine it was awesome....
