No start after fuel filter change

So I was in a hurry and didn't cycle my key after changing my filters.
I have cycled the key MULTIPLE times and still can't get any fuel up to the fuel bowl. When I key on I can hear the lpfp running but no fuel is getting to the separator when I open it?

Could my pump be toast even though I can hear it running?
Need some help

Open a bango and bleed it proper before dropping coin.. the far head is best.

I had a similar thing happen to me once whenever one of my buddies decided to pull a fast one on me and open the bleeder on the pump up. I made it about 300ft up the street until running on just air. needless to say it took two batteries and a jump pack until I got it running again. You'll have to fill bowl up on top and if you got air in the hpf system open the valve that's like a bleeder on lh side by where you put the antifreeze in for the fuel cooler. run a hose down to a bucket and keep cycling key/cranking the truck until remedied. Don't overdo it with the starter or you'll burn it up eventually
