Yes it'll grow back.

It'll take a few moults to complete the process.

It depends on how early afetr its previous molt for it to grow back. If a leg falls off right after a molt, there is a good chance that it can be fully regenerated. If not it may take 2-3 molts before the leg is full size (indistinguishable from the others) I had a B. smithi who lost a leg during a molt, and when it molted again, the leg was fully regenerated. I also had a C. paganus that it took three molts for the leg to be full size.
