I was lucky and caught my fuel pressure dropping due to gelling since I have a fuel pressure gauge.

Once I through the bottle of Diesel 911 in and topped up the fuel it only took 10 minutes of idling before my fuel pressure went back to normal.

I have seen gelling in my tractors before and yes it looks like what you described. I don't expect you ran it long enough to really damage your injectors, but low fuel pressure is known to cause them to fail.

Throw in new filters and a bottle Diesel 911, I believe it will get you going.
