Hey Randall, good to see you on the forum. Probably no damage done,I agree with Ardi, you might need to replace the crush washer at the filter if it leaks after bleeding.
Here's the procedure from our Fuji brothers.

It's so hard to get to the fuel pump I'd try the cracking the last injector and pump till your thumb is about to fall off. I installed a electric fuel pump from NAPA, before the engine. I only run it to bleed the system, otherwise fuel just flows thru it. Good Luck
