Question Old versus New LoR

I have a 1 year old stellar US LOR. Yesterday, the same faculty member wrote me a new LOR...but it still hasn't been uploaded to ERAS PostOffice (via LWP).

My questions is...should I assign the old LOR or new one? I know LWP is supposed to be fairly quick, but I don't know if it looks bad to programs if they get an empty LOR slot when they intially download my application.

Wait a couple of days for the new LoR to upload and then apply.

Waiting until the second week of September is not considered late application.
