We looked all over the net and couldn't find anything that suggested doing so, though the only reasons they gave was the difficulty of removing the giblets, which has already been done and the possiblity of juices overflowing. I just wanted to make sure its not going to get people sick.
As long as the temperature is correct, it will be safe to eat. If you can, it might be a good idea to get an instant-read thermometer to check the temp.

Just put the turkey in the bag and in the oven at the temp recommended on the roasting bag box. If your bird has a pop-up, position it in the oven so that you can see it. When it pops up, it's done. If it doesn't, look at the bird regularly starting at about 4 hours. When you see the top browning nicely and juices in the bottom of the bag, take it out and check the temp. You can poke a little hole in the bag for the thermometer and it won't hurt anything if you still need more roasting time. Also, remember to put the flour in the bottom of the bag to keep it from bursting.
