Expert Answer:

Yes, a displacement reaction can be redox at the same time.

Example : Fe(s) + CuSO4(aq) → FeSO4(aq) + Cu(s)

Oxidation state of Fe changes from 0 to +2

Oxidation state of Cu changes from +2 to 0

Since oxidation states of elements are changed during the reaction, given reaction is a redox reaction.

Since Fe displaces Cu from its solution during the reaction,  given reaction is a displacement reaction.
