Yes substituting FS for BS will work fine. You should evaluate your hip mobility as well, glutes, hamstrings, hip flexors, IT Bands, and calves, this will go a long way in injury prevention as well as comfort when squatting. If you are squatting below parallel ( hips below knee), and sitting back on your heels, there is still a fair amount of glute/hamstring contribution to the movement. Adding supplemental hip extensor work will work great and compliment heavy squatting, just as you would need to do with back squats. As long as there isn't any pain or discomfort with anything you do. Greg's Olympic Weightlifting Book has a chapter with great pictures on mobility as well as supplemental training movements, and lifting %s. What was the cause of your injury?
