Default Bent push rod

My son was driving up a steep incline and bent a rod.

I have one bent push rod on number 3. I haven't looked at the other one, but I plan on replacing both.

I originally thought I had an injector issue on 3 and 5. Cylinder contribution test showed 18.0 on both cylinders 3 & 5 at idle. I have two injectors to replace both of them.

Can I replace the rods and hope for the best?

DO you see anything else I can check without tearing out the heads?

Is there a special procedure other than taking the rocker arm off and replacing the rod?
