Turkey skin fell off

I have a 22lb turkey, which has been in the oven for about 2 hours. I just went to baste it, and when I removed the foil tenting the turkey I discovered a large portion of the skin had fallen off the breast! I still have a couple hours of cooking to go, and am very concerned my turkey will be dry and ugly.

I covered the breasts tightly with foil, and tented the entire turkey in more foil. Should I remove the foil tent? Perhaps it's too moist, which is why it's disintegrating?

Is there any way to save my turkey?
