rod bearing question

Im helping a friend with his 327 in a street strip car, saturday he had a weak valve spring and it floated the valve, when it did the piston smacked the valve bending it. Engine is still in car we tore top end down and inspected the piston it just nicked it very little, i think were ok there, so could that have caused any damage on the rod bearing on that cylinder? If socan we pull pan and take cap off and look at it and if its fine put it back on and retorque it. Or is that a major NO NO. The motors three years old and seems still strong with great oil psi till this lil misshap. Thanks John
