Any "free/unused" interface can be added to the the SD-WAN (virtual-wan-link) interface - It's mostly to act as a placeholder for revising the firewall policy section.
Any static route setting should still be retained after placing a WAN interface into the SD_WAN, though I would try some testing on your part.
Shame you are not on site, if all possible I would set up a backup connection to a free port on the fgt in the event that you do lose connection to it, at least someone on site could swap cables/ports. (Just make sure the authorized admin port settings are also set up on the backup wan interface. And perhaps you may want to test that connection first.)
