The 32-year-old has made 165 career appearances for Manly Sea Eagles, Parramatta Eels, Manly Sea Eagles, Toronto Wolfpack and Salford.
Featherstone coach James Webster said: “Darcy will bring some added depth to an area where we are currently a bit thin.
“With (James) Harrison, (Jack) Bussey, (Brett) Ferres, and (Dale) Ferguson all unavailable as well as Luke Cooper just coming back from injury, it’s added a lot of extra pressure on our other middles.
“Obviously Darcy has played at a high level in both the NRL and Super League and we look forward to him joining us for the next two weeks.”
