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.
