Not necessarily: Meniscal displacement just means its not in its normal spot. There are several different patterns of meniscal tearing, but it doesn't necessarily mean that you have a meniscal root tear.

Let me explain: Patient has interment looking of the knee because of the displacement beside and swelling. The problem related to the attachment of the meniscus and the capsule of the joint.
