Can a Shimano ST-RS505 2X left disc brake drop bar shifter lever be converted to a 3X?

I have a Sturmey-Archer CS-RK3 3spd IGH cassette hub 27.5” wheelset that I want to use on a Soma Wolverine frame with off-road drop bars. This internal rear hub 3spd works with a standard 3X front derailleur shifter, but the ST-RS505 disc brake set I have is 2X. I’d like to use the left lever shifter for 3X if possible.

Any mechanics out there know if converting this 2X lever to a 3X lever is a 100% no go?

Thanks. Don’t need it for my current application, but was looking towards the future and its’ universality between my bikes and wheelsets. Only using the right 11spd with a Tanpan SH11 for a MTB Shimano XT long-cage derailleur 1X11 on current application; left is unused.
