It will bleed itself. However, it's a good idea to pull the big plug on the back of the head before you remove the injector. If you don't, oil will run into the cylinders and could possibly hydro lock, causing some serious problems.

Just cycle the key several times to allow the pump to prime and bleed itself before trying to start the truck.
