Bleeding external clutch slave

How can I do this? I've got one of the slaves without the bleeder valve. Can I reverse bleed it by pumping the slave rod causing the fluid to go back up to the reservoir?

Don't hold me to this because it's been awhile since I monkeyed with a YJ, but IIRC it will self-bleed as you cycle the pedal. A few have a little bleed screw on them, but the factory sold them as a matched set with the clutch master already filled & bled. You did have to cycle the pedal a few times to get them operational. If that won't work you can possibly just bled it at the lines.
